Julia Eccleshare's comment:
A many layer approach to some of the most interesting wild animals. A short information text is matched by attractive illustrations which include some lovely details to touch and feel and four simple jigsaws to develop the concept of matching pieces visually. Elephants, koalas, lions and pandas are all shown in a simple style.
If you’re looking for other great books for this age range then go to our Babies and Toddlers category.
