The book is compiled of three different types of pages: Explore, Investigate and Create. Explore pages look at facts and knowledge about birds, teaching children how they fly, why they migrate and more. Investigate pages are activities and experiments which allow children to investigate the anatomy and behaviours of birds further in a hands-on and educational way. Create pages let children stretch their imagination, whether its reading a traditional story about birds or making art out of feathers and shells.
Birds are everywhere but what do they do and why are they important to our planet? Explore how they help pollinate plants and disperse seeds or recycle nutrients when they scavenge and poke around! Discover all you need to know about our feathered friends and their place in our world through experiments, investigations and hands-on tasks. This series takes a cross-disciplinary approach, including links to culture, history, arts and crafts, as well as the science behind each topic. Each spread encourages children to engage with the natural world through exploration, creativity and investigation.
