- This book is great for younger readers or even those being read to. It has a little over 100 words, typed in large clear type with basic facts and information. Each text page faces one of 10 beautiful, crisp clear full-page photos of various type of antelope, including: gemsbok, Thomson's gazelles, springbok, eland, impala, gerenuk and a few others. I had a very difficult time finding books with good pictures and concise information on antelopes, but this one is great. The only things I felt could have been better were #1:there were a few photos that weren't labeled as to specific type of antelope and if you have a kid who wants to know these details, you're going to be googling images to find similar photos, and #2:there are several pictures that are printed partially onto the facing page of text, and while this was a neat concept, it just didn't really work great because of the binding. Still, all in all, we were very pleased with the book.
