I love the illustrations in this book and the map of Africa on the front page. The storyline is excellent and imparts valuable moral lessons to children: the importance of not listening to strangers and always obeying their parents. This valuable lesson will help keep them safe and protect them from potential dangers.

We explored the book “Kob the Antelope” which I must say was their favourite book. As we read, the children role-played the book and connected the hyena to the poachers who hunt endangered species. The children then created an activist poster to stop people from hunting endangered species. They also felt empathy for Kob’s mother and designed a “Missing Poster” to help her find Kob. Finally, the children also looked into what kind of a character the antelope was and what areas the character needs to improve on in order to avoid the hyena next time.

This book is clear and concise, a good read and story, it has a good balance of suspense and directness. A few words may require further explanation to the target age group. Overall a good book that could be used for bedtime stories as well.

The artwork in this book is beautiful. The romanticization of African nature is amazing, allowing kids to get an appreciation of African nature.  The addition of the map will help kids expand their knowledge of Africa. I feel the way the antelope calls his mother does not represent African parental names such as "mummy" "mama" if possible, this should be added. The use of the hyena to illustrate the fact that not all smiling faces are genuine but may have evil intent behind them is  applaudable.

"Kob the Antelope" teaches a very important lesson to children who read it. The book shows a sense of motherly love and care as even though Kob left home, when he came back his mother received him with open arms. It teaches children that they can always go back to their parents no matter what and also shows them that even in dangerous situations, there is always a way out.
