A delightful book which gently touches on environmental issues in a lift-the-flap format. Its contents will encourage toddlers to go out and about and care for their planet and to use their eyes and ears to seek out animals around them.


Out and About in My Boots Lift-the-Flap and Discover the World Around You by Christina Goodings

'Boots! That's what every young explorer needs. This book shows you some of the things you might discover when you go out and about.' This lift-the-flap book is a fun way to help children take notice of and care for their immediate environment. Taking children on a walk of discovery to all the places that boots might be worn - the park, the woods and the pond - the simple message and flaps on each page encourage children to be still and quiet - and then they might notice little things like mice in wet grass, frogs in muddy puddles, tiny flowers and insects under logs,


This bright picture book invites young readers or listeners to join six exuberant children as they run through the countryside in gaily coloured boots. Boots are shown as sensible footwear for negotiating muddy puddles, marshy areas near ponds and damp grass. Young children love to lift flaps and here they will discover a spider, bumblebees, acorns and dragonflies. There is a lot to think and talk about. When exploring, you should not go too fast in case you miss small but interesting things like a bird's nest or tiny beetles. And, with a nudge towards environmental awareness, young children are urged to leave behind 'only your footprints'. This is an exciting, life enhancing and delightfully interactive book.A Books for Keeps
