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.
Robin Day (1915-2010) was born in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire and studied at High Wycombe School of Art, before moving to London to attend the Royal College of Art. He was one the most important British furniture designer of the 20th century. His wife Lucienne, whom he met during his time at the RCA, was a successful textile designer. Both designed with intentions of a broad reach rather than a luxury market and worked with manufacturers and department stores. Both Robin and Lucienne exhibited at the Festival of Britain, he providing the furniture designs, she the textiles that covered them.
