Rescue!: Bindi Wildlife Adventures by Bindi IrwinSourcebooks JabberwockyISBN-10: 1402255179ISBN-13: 978-1402255175112 Pages Ages 9-12 Children’s Picture Book Wildlife ConservationBindi Irwin is the daughter of “The Crocodile Hunter.” She is a 12-year old Emmy-award- winning actress, TV host, and conservationist.Rescue! Is a wildlife adventure about saving the giant sable antelope in South Africa.In the 2nd book in this series, Rescue! takes the reader on a horse trek to South Africa where Bindi, along with her friend Hannah and their guide Thabu, travel across the savannah looking for wildlife.When they make camp for the night Bindi and Hannah become awakened when they hear intruders trying to break into a nearby breeding sanctuary of the endangered giant sable. Realizing, that not everyone is interested in saving the antelope, Bindi and Hannah attempt to stop the intruders. Though they were successful in that endeavor, they soon find themselves in an awkward position with a lioness on the attack. Trying to save themselves, they venture into the sanctuary but were soon captured by the police and accused of spying. No one believes their story and what they have learned. Will Bindi be able to stop an evil plot that will affect the antelope’s future without being arrested and thrown into jail in a case of wrong place-wrong time?Children will enjoy this 112-page early chapter book. The story starts off a little slow with the characters not seeing or doing much, then picks up to a good pace and sucks in the reader into an adventurous and suspenseful ride as the reader learns what happens to the sable’s sanctuary. It’s exciting to see the series evolve and become more interesting and suspenseful. Children will like the fascinating topic and the uniqueness of South Africa’s landscape and wildlife issues. The animal fact file in the back of the book teaches the reader about the springbok and the giant sable.
This second book in the series seems markedly different from the first. While the first was written by Chris Kunz, this book is written by Bindi Irwin and Jess Black. The book is once again fast paced and full of action. Since I read the book with an eye toward adding it to my 4th grade classroom library, the rest of my review is from the perspective of a teacher. The print is large, the number of pages is fewer than 100 and the cover is attractive, these factors being important to developing readers. The vocabulary is more challenging and some of the chapters seem to have more content than the first book. In Bindi’s adventure in South Africa, she and a friend sneak away from their tent at night and end up being taken by dangerous strangers. There is no graphic violence, and the girls survive without physical harm, but the situation might not be right for every reader. I would not recommend this book for the Lower Grades (1-3) classroom library, or young students with advanced reading skills, as I would recommend the first book in the series. The situation that the girls are taken away from their camping site by strangers and the theme of illegal hunting for protected animals may be too mature for many young readers. Readers about age 9 or 10 might find it a satisfying read.
This book is the second in the series that chronicles the fictional adventures of Bindi Irwin, daughter of Terri Erwin and the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. My children and I have FLOWN through these books! We actually read this book TWICE in one night because my children enjoyed it so much!! With this book, we learned about the Springbok and the Giant Sable Antelope. We are definitely enjoying this series!!
Fun! As much fun as the first book! I'm wondering if Miss Bindi writes these herself, or dictates them to a ghost writer... Whatever the case, the voice is natural, believable, and Bindi-ful! Definitely recommend this series to my elementary students!
