A brightly illustrated first guide to nature for 6+ year olds.
Bright, engaging and fun, this is the perfect package of inspiration to spark a little one's interest in the great outdoors. Split into four clear sections: Plants, Bugs, Birds and Animals, plus a glossary at the back, discover how seeds grow, why some bugs are stripy, how penguins live, why chameleons change colour and much more. Jane Newland's charming illustrations are accompanied by carefully written text for young readers by children's natural history author Camilla de la Bedoyere. There's a ladybird to spot in every scene for an added element of fun.
Camilla de la Bedoyere has an academic background in zoology and has written more than 200 books for children and adults. She lives in London with her family and is a Fellow of the Zoological Society of London.

The natural world features heavily in Jane's work, providing an endless source of inspiration. She is drawn to the rich colours and details of nature. Jane works almost exclusively digitally.
