by Louise Park, illustrated by Jeannette Rowe
ABC Books. Australian, Picture, Learning. Paperback RRP $5.99
Here is a great series for children that will help answer some of the most simplest but difficult to answer questions.
With Rowe’s bright coloured flat illustrations and Park’s simple wording it is great to know that a child will easily retain the explanation and the answer and understand it as well. With a joke and an activity at the end of each book, a child can further reiterate what they have learnt. The reader will not even realise they are learning.
With 12 books so far in the series including Rain, Shadows, and Frog I think they would be a wonderful addition to any child’s library and great as an information source for primary schools.
