What People are Saying About This

Senior Faculty, Cambridge College, School of Education - Maura D. Buckley

"What an enchanting way for children to be introduced to the animals of South Africa! As soon as Quickly fans open the book they will be enticed to go along on this rhyme-filled alphabet safari."

PhD., Associate Professor, Dept. of English, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (and mother of an early reader) - Ramona Curry

"A happy kitchen spatula wearing tennis shoes—what a fun character! And what fresh alphabetic discoveries readers can make with Quickly and friends on their adventure in the South African bush, learning about creatures like the 'I for impala' that bound all around without making a sound. The rhymes engage, the illustrations charm—even the safari jeep is smiling, mirroring my pleasure in this fine children's book."
