RSPB First Book of Mammals by Anita Ganeri, David Chandler, Mike Unwin

Launching with four books looking at flowers, birds, mammals and minibeasts, each RSPB spotter's guide will comprise 35 common garden creatures for beginner naturalists. Through beautiful full-page illustration accompanied by key information about each creature, books are designed to encourage young children's interest in the outside world and the wildlife around them. A spotter's chart for children to fill in, and links to Internet-based activities in each book, mean that children can extend the fun.


'beautifully illustrated books...include a spotter's guide at the back, perfect for encouraging children to find out more about creatures and plants and where they come from. They are ideal for linking to KS1 geography and science topics...'

'ideal for children starting to show an interest in nature. Beautiful full-page illustrations are complemented by key information about each creature or flower...they make a wonderful introduction for children to the world around us, and they are so attractive and easy to use that children will find them a real encouragement.' (August 2011)

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
