The Story Behind the Book

I have always been fascinated by nature, maybe because a lot of it makes me sneeze. I love carrying my camera around with me to take photos of the plants and animals I come across in my daily life. I’ve always lived in a rural setting, but even when I worked in the city I liked to look for the animal and plant life there.

Animals and plants with their beauty and gritty reality are endlessly interesting to me. Who knew that some chickens dance? Who knew that humans eat grass…or at least plants that are members of the grass family? Humans are a part of the complex natural world and I wanted to show that to young children. The puzzle to find the animals in the book adds a layer of fun to the information.

“It’s chock full of rich colour illustrations, simple explanations and amazing facts about plants and animals. It’s well worth the (price).”
