This time we look upwards to discover some magnificent bird species. Along with the bold Mibo illustrations this book boasts beautiful rhyming prose by the wonderful Jason Hook.
Five animals are explored through rhyme, pictures and pull-out 2D figures to construct into 3D: Albatross, Flamingo, Owl, Pelican and Hummingbird.
With two spreads dedicated to each animal, adults will be able to read the short playful rhyme on each spread to children and look at the bright illustrations to teach them about the animal and its environment. Children will then be able to pop out the paper animals from the perforated pages contained in an pocket in the back of the book and create 3D figures by simple folding and a few dabs of glue. This will help develop their motor skills and encourage imaginative play and conversation.
