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.
