A First Book of Animals

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

A wide range of animals are depicted and celebrated in this lovely, colourful hardback - from polar bears to flamingos, fireflies to nightingales. Each double page spread features a full illustration and a short poem - some rhyming, some not - telling young readers and their parents something about the featured animal.

Animals are a favourite subject with children from an early age, so it's lovely that this nature book is aimed at younger emerging readers and an ideal book for reading aloud to little ones. The vibrant illustrations are works of art in their own right, and the visual style and the poetic text are pitched just at the right level to interest pre-schoolers and Key Stage 1 children.
