Teach your children about our feathered friends with this fun and educational book. Five birds – a flamingo, owl, hummingbird, albatross and pelican – are explored through rhyme, pictures and pull-out cards to construct into 3D figures. With two spreads dedicated to each bird, 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. Children will then be able to pop out the card birds from the perforated pages contained in a pocket at the back of the book and create 3D figures simply by folding and adding a few dabs of glue. The inside of the dust jacket is printed full colour with a graphical representation of the birds’ environment. Children have the option of using this as a backdrop for the birds, and there are also accessories to make and add to the scene. This activity will help develop their motor skills and encourage imaginative play and conversation.
