RSPB First Book of Birds 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 might be found. 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)
