Ned Barraud | paperback | 32 pages | 2022
This is a ‘look and find’ book for all children who want to learn about New Zealand’s wildlife.
A sequel to the highly successful Where is it?, this book focuses on wildlife that Kiwi kids might encounter in town. Each page illustrates an urban environment, including a garden both in the daytime and at night, botanic gardens, a creek, the sea below the local wharf, long grass in the backyard, a native reserve, a garden shed and the country on the edge of town.
There is also a detailed glossary about many of the animals featured. Where is it in town? is a wonderfully interactive way to teach younger children about New Zealand’s natural world, with stunning illustrations to enhance their learning.
