This bright and lively board book introduces young children to a range of animals and their special characteristics.

Loes Botman's colourful and detailed illustrations bring the animals to life, and the simple concepts and words make these books perfect for exploring with young children.


'The minimal text leaves the animals unnamed, providing a good opportunity for conversation and encouraging readers to focus on the gorgeous pastel illustrations, which are what make this offering special. The detailed, realistic renderings create lifelike critters ablaze with color and light.'
-- Kirkus Reviews

'delightfully vibrant and clear illustrations of carefully chosen animals, birds and fish […] beautifully atmospheric and realistic paintings, and very minimal text, are ideal for young nature lovers.'
