Sophia Safari: The aardvark and the ant
By Kayleigh Huysamen
Sophia lives on a game farm with her brother, sister, and parents. They get up to all kinds of wild and wonderful adventures as they explore and discover the bush.
Designed to teach children more about nature as they learn their alphabet, the Sophia series is a wealth of information beautifully fused with some real-life, relatable adventures.
In the first book – The aardvark and the ant, your child is introduced to Sophia and her family and learns about their home in Zululand and how the children are homeschooled by their mom.
Sophia starts a biology book to record and learn about the animals around her. One of the first animals she encounters is an aardvark that eats ants.
With some interesting facts about both the aardvark and ants, children can learn fun facts whilst reading along.
For example, did you know that an aardvark can eat up to 60 000 ants at a time?
These books are a fabulous resource for homeschoolers and great to introduce the alphabet and nature studies among your children.
