Teach your children about the animals of the forest with this fun and educational book. Five animals - a brown bear, wolf, squirrel, otter and deer - are explored through rhyme, pictures and pull-out cards to construct into 3D figures. With two spreads dedicated to each animal, adults will be able to read the short playful rhyme on each spread to children and look at the bright illustrations to teach them about their habits and environment. The inside of the dust jacket is printed full colour with a graphical representation of the animals' environment.
Eric Ravilious was a painter, designer, illustrator and wood engraver. He was born in 1903 in the East Sussex, and the environment of his upbringing is evident in his popular watercolours of the South Downs and the south coast. He was particularly inspired by chalk hill figures. He brought a unique perspective to his depiction of England between the wars, creating landscapes with a quirky, modernist sensibility. Ravilious served as a war artist, creating dazzling seascapes and fresh studies of planes in flight, and died when his plane was lost off the coast of Iceland in 1942. The charm and flair of his work has ensured its enduring popularity.
