Naturama Open Your Eyes to the Wonders of Irish Nature by Michael Fewer

This breathtakingly exciting new book introduces you to Ireland's flora and fauna with every changing season.

Listen to the blackbird's song, spot an madra rua in your local town, discover why the ash tree is good for making hurlies, count a snail's 27,000 teeth, watch stags fight and spot jellyfish at the seaside, laughing as you discover the meaning of their Irish name, smugairle roin! With Naturama you will discover the magic of every Irish season. So put your boots on - it's time to go outside! `From the makers of the fabulous Irelandopedia comes Naturama, a fun book that encourages its reader to get outside and explore the great Irish outdoors,' Irish Tatler `A joy to read and a must for both homes and classrooms!'
