Here are a couple of new reviews to inspire, puzzle and hook your reading bug, artistic creativity and environmental interests...
A Tower of Giraffes: Animal Bunches written and illustrated by Anna Wright
This brilliant picture book introduces us to some very curious terms for animal groups. We often talk about a ‘herd of elephants’ or a ‘flock of birds’, but you will be absolutely intrigued by some of the extraordinary names that author/illustrator Anna Wright introduces us to. All the animals covered are illustrated in a wonderful collage of paint, ink and/or fabric – some look bemused, some playful, others mischievous or just chillin', and all will make you grin.
If Sharks Disappeared written and illustrated by Lily Williams
I really like this picture book because it helps us understand how everything is linked and why it is so very important that we look after this beautiful world we live in. If Sharks Disappeared takes a look at what happens if all the sharks that swim in the beautiful oceans were no more. Simply told, with bold illustrations, this book gives us lots to think about, including suggestions on how each one of us can be, even in a small way, kaitiaki of these magnificent wonders of the sea.
