The Lovereading4Kids comment

The Gruffalo leads young readers deep into the woods so that they can explore nature. There are so many things to spot! There are signs of spring in the grass and everything else that is green, in the new families of ducklings, in the colours of the spring flowers and in the special spring sounds. Over 200 reward stickers and spaces to draw observations make this an enjoyable and interactive guide which will encourage looking closely at nature.

Synopsis

Gruffalo Explorers: the Gruffalo Spring Nature Trail by Julia Donaldson

This handily sized activity book is suitable for even the youngest nature lovers and Gruffalo fans, and is full of great activities that are based around seeing and engaging with nature and the outside world. It's about stopping, seeing, listening and collecting in a way that's accessible and fun, with activities that link into the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) of the curriculum.

Reviews

'Perfect for the many parents who have enticed children into walks by promising them a Gruffalo hunt, this information/activity book is jam-packed with outdoor activities, stickers and a spotters guide.' -- Children's Special 2014-2015 The Bookseller
