About

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.

About the artist
Anna Atkins

Anna Atkins was the world’s first woman photographer. She was a botanist as well as a skilled scientific draughtsman, contributing the drawings of shells for her father the zoologist John George Children F.R.S's translation of Lamarck's Genera of Shells 1823. She was also the first person to print and publish a photographically illustrated book, British Algae (1843). She took up what she called ‘Sir John Herschel’s beautiful process of cyanotype’ as soon as it was invented in 1842. To make a ‘photogram’ with the cyanotype process, the photographer laid an object on paper impregnated with iron salts, then exposed the paper to sunlight for a few minutes. When washed in water, the area where the plant had blocked the light remained white, but the area that was exposed came out a rich blue.
