It is true that I have neglected Non-fiction books on this blog so far. However, I will blame my 7-year-old son, Noah - he keeps stealing them. I have had to get this one from by his bed in order to review it.
The Wonder Garden is a beautifully illustrated book which allows its readers to 'wander through five habitats to discover eighty amazing animals.'
The language used in the text is challenging also using the latin names of the animals alongside the common. The author describes the creatures vividly, using poetic language amongst the technical. (See extract below)
Other beautifully illustrated non-fiction texts with an animal theme.
