Dave Gunson | Paperback | 2012 | 36 pages
The natural world of our backyards includes many fascinating native and introduced species, from fungi, butterflies and moths, spiders and weta to reptiles and beautiful birds. Just as children enjoy encounters with garden wildlife, they’ll love learning about it as they colour in the simple, bold illustrations in this book, the latest in the ‘read, colour and keep’ series from Dave Gunson. Read: Each page carries a sentence or two of introductory text alongside a traceable black-and-white line illustration ready to be coloured in. Colour: An A4 double-page colour insert will guide children on realistic colour and markings. Keep: Every illustration page is perforated to enable the completed drawing to be taken out of the book for display.
