The Lovereading4Kids comment

With large flaps on every page, short accompanying explanatory sentences and attractive illustrations, this is a great book to introduce children to nature and the natural world. Focussing on the forest and its animal and plant life, the book is divided into six sections: plants, animals, pondlife, insects, habitats and baby animals. Lifting the flap entitled ‘den’ takes us underground, a line of text explaining that ‘a fox’s home is also called an earth and they live above and below ground’; a series of pictures under the flap called ‘frogspawn’ shows each stage of a tadpole’s transformation into a frog. Indeed, each page is full of interesting information and provides a starting point too for further conversations about nature. ~ Andrea Reece


Hidden World Forest by Libby Walden

Did you know that natural beehives are built in caves, rocks and trees? Or that the reason that beavers build dams is to make it easier to catch fish? Hidden World: Forest is jam-packed with interesting facts, and makes a wonderful first non-fiction book for young readers.

With the ever-increasing dangers of global warming and the safety of our planets dynamic ecosystems this novelty non-fiction can be used as a way to start conversations about protecting, preserving and appreciating the forest environment. Featuring a variety of themed spreads, including ‘Habitats’, ‘Plants’, ‘Baby Animals’ and ‘Insects’. Each section has six flaps which open to reveal sumptuous illustrations and fun, bite-sized facts about the secrets of the forest.

This gorgeously illustrated, multi-flap book is perfect for igniting a passion in your little explorer or encouraging a love of natural discovery and the wonders of the woodland.


“An enchanting introduction to flora and fauna. Lift the flaps to explore the woodland, learning facts as you go.” – Little London
