Discover the delights of nature with zoologist, poet and top children’s book author, Nicola Davies.
Follow her young adventurer as she treks through the jungle, dives deep down into the sea and climbs high up into the trees. Into the Blue features delightful characters from the deep blue sea. Fully illustrated in colour by exciting new illustrator Abbie Cameron. Full educational notes on all of the animals featured in Animal Surprises are available to download from the Graffeg website.
“Nicola Davies knows just how to make scientific concepts interesting and accessible, even to the youngest children. For example the notion of the food chain is introduced in Into the Blue when we see ‘silvery sand eels that sparkle and glimmer, And puffins collecting them up for their dinner!’All this creates a space in children’s minds ready for more advanced teaching and learning about the natural world later on. The sharing adult will be able to help children link what they see in the books with their own outdoor experiences. I’m sure these books will be favourites to look at again and.” Books for Keeps
