Bindi Irwin, daughter of the famed crocodile hunter Steve Irwin, helped to create this wildlife series. Bindi even chimes in on the audiobook, bringing to life her exciting stories. Both hers and Miranda Nation's performances are sweet, funny, and enthusiastic. Junior rangers will love learning about the Australian zoo through Bindi's lively perspective. This famous Australian's real-life mom and brother make appearances, too, in each of the included three stories: "Trouble at the Zoo", "Bushfire", and "Camouflage". With its focus on wildlife conservation, Bindi Irwin Wildlife Adventures will inspire young ones who love animals.
