[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with ALONG THE LUANGWA.]--In association with the Nature Conservancy, Soundprints (publisher of children's nature materials, not to be confused with Soundprint, the radio documentary organization) has produced these two titles as part of a series of interactive storybook sets. The short programs are repeated on both sides of the cassette, once with page-turning signals and once without. Randye Kaye's gentle voice guides the listener through these two stories: one about a mother crocodile raising her hatchlings on the Luangwa River in the Zambian floodplain; the other about a young female mountain gorilla's search for a mate in the Virunga Mountains. Beautifully produced, with sound effects taken from the environments in which the stories are set, these two interactive storybooks are available as a print book or an audiobook, as well as in gift sets containing both, along with a plush stuffed animal.
