SynopsisNature Adventures by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom
A guide to child-led family activities centred on nature rambles in different habitats - park, seaside, woodland, moorland, river and lake etc - through the seasons. Spreads comprise large colourful identification illustrations complemented by activities and facts. Activities include identifying common European species of insects, plants, mammals and birds, looking for tracks, feathers, droppings, making plastercasts of tracks, and collecting and displaying seeds, leaves and fruit and nuts.
'Why do children so often lose their early love of nature? Nature Adventures is a valiant attempt to keep that interest alive' - BBC Wildlife
"...whether they live in the city or country...With sketches as well as literary quotations, this book will transform the walk to school." ...and weekends too." - Daily Telegraph
About The Author
Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom have been writing and illustrating children's books together for over fifteen years. Specialising in fun, lively non-fiction picture books, they have perfected their unique approach, sharing the illustrations between them and mixing up words and pictures in all sorts of inventive and delightful ways. They have won numerous awards and their books are published internationally in over 15 languages.
Their first book, The World is Full of Babies, won the Smarties Silver Prize in 1996 and their following collaboration, What's Under the Bed? won the TES Award for 1997.
Further success followed with the acclaimed Fly on the Wall series: Roman Fort, Pharaoh's Egypt, Viking Longship, Greek Hero, Tail-End Charlie and What Mr Darwin Saw. Both Roman Fort and Viking Longship were shortlisted for the English Association 4-11 Awards and Greek Hero won in 2008.
Snap! is the follow-up to Yuck! which was a regional winner of the Highland Book Awards 2006.
Recently Mick and Brita donated the entire body of work created for their book Fly on the Wall: Greek Hero to Seven Stories, the centre for children's books.
Their lastest books include Charles Dickens: Scenes from an Extraordinary Life and the award winning Taff in the WAAF.
Mick and Brita live in the Scottish Borders and have 4 sons.
