See Inside


My animal book is a hands-on, action-packed title to share with young children. The starting point is the child and the questions they ask about animals. First, there’s a big surprise: a human being is an animal! Then come all kinds of questions and activities to encourage children to think about where different animals live, what they eat and how they have families. There are things to do both on and off the page, including games, recipes and craft activities. A little girl called Koko helps children to think about animals and make comparisons with their own lives. There are also three intrepid explorers who go on adventures to a variety of places to find out about different species. This friendly and approachable book will be read again and again by all children of 5 and over.
