Animal Games ¦ Animal Tricks ¦ Seasons ¦ Animal Homes ¦ Animal Shapes
Readers of Animal Games will want to create their own stories as well as reading the one-sentence text that accompanies each attractive illustration of animals at play. Rhyming couplets are used to keep the reader turning the pages of Animal Tricks but having read the book straight through, they will want to return and linger over the humorous details in the pictures. Seasons and Animal Homes have more text, the former being a colourful tribute to the natural cycles, whilst the latter illustrates and describes various habits and habitats. And Animal Shapes is designed to encourage children to try their hand at creating their own pictures. It is always a joy to look at Brian Wildsmith's marvellous paintings and at £1.95 each, these books are exceptional value.
