What is a fluke, who has one and is it lucky?
If your kids love surprises, this bold and beautiful animal discovery book will delight.
Zoologist and popular UK children’s author Nicola Davies, explores the animal world in bold colour and marvellous detail.
From microscopic to mammoth, creatures both exotic and familiar flout their flair, special abilities and expert camouflage tricks.
Habitats and habits are revealed as kids travel the globe with a keen young explorer.
“Tall and thin, short and squat, shaped like a star or just a dot.”
Lots of fun for young learners with a maze puzzle to tickle the brain, legs to count and all sorts of unusual shapes and sizes to identify. There are plenty of new words and opportunities to match them to the right beasties.
Playful graphic text may challenge some young readers as it swirls around the page.
Animal Surprises is also an engaging book to read with small groups of children.
Youngsters will be full of questions.
You may want to find out a few of the creatures names in advance or use this book as a springboard into further investigation with your kids.
Knowing these are real animals makes this book even more interesting. We love the tiny spider sitting boldly on a fingertip.
Children are full of curiosity and will enjoy browsing Animal Surprises with you or on their own.
A wonderful book to inspire young artists, animal lovers and adventurers.
