Today is Saturday, and that means Safari! Elliott has waited all week for this adventure. He jumps out of bed, throws on his safari gear, and grabs his camera. Maybe today he'll see an animal he's never seen before like a crocodile or a rhinoceros. If he does, he'll have to be quick to snap a picture and add it to his prized collection.
Would you like to come on Safari with Elliott? Yes?
Great! Grab your safari gear and don't forget the sunscreen. But let me warn you, Elliott has a crazy, wild imagination. What he sees isn't always what it appears to be.
