This is another one to add to your collection for a unit of work on the environment although I also think this would work perfectly for little ones’ Christian Studies if yours is a church school as mine is.
It’s not just an examination of what a small person might express about their love for the world around them but IMO a glorious way to express gratitude to the Creator for this wondrous world.
Delightful double spreads each feature one particular sentiment as extremely sweet woodland creatures scamper around doing their own busy investigations. How super would it be to have your class create their own similar books, whether as individuals or as a combined class collaboration! Since this one features animals from all around the world perhaps their focus could be a version which showcases our own native fauna and of course, what is so beautiful about our own part of the earth.
Little ones from as young as two will love this both for its text and the artwork in which they will love to point out the various animals.
Recommended for small humans in the Foundation years.
