The Lovereading4Kids comment

As every Gruffalo fan knows, there’s lots to be discovered in the deep, dark wood. This handy little spotters guide is just the thing to take out into the wood, countryside or park and will inject extra Gruffalo-themed fun into walks with children. It’s full of games and activities to encourage young children to learn about nature. There are eye-spy games, guides to trees and butterflies, activity suggestions and two page of bright reward stickers. It’s great fun for the summer and beyond, and a very useful little information book too. ~ Andrea Reece


Gruffalo Explorers: The Gruffalo Summer Nature Trail by Julia Donaldson

Gruffalo Explorer: The Gruffalo Summer Nature Trail is a handily sized activity book that is suitable for even the youngest nature lovers and fans of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's much-loved character, and is full of great activities that are based around 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 for Years 4 and 5. Look out for other seasonal Gruffalo Explorer titles!

For all things Gruffalo visit


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
