Another wonderful bundle of books came recently even though I still have a lot of catching up to do with my previous hauls from last month. All of the following books come courtesy of the wonderful people at Walker Books and it’s an interesting selection of books from board books, middle grade to an historical fiction YA! Apologies for the (still) slightly out of focus photographs. I tried a new camera and I had to give it back as it’s images came out grainy and out of focus (so worse than my phone!) …buying a new camera on a budget doesn’t seem to be so easy.
Let’s start with the picture books (full blurbs will appear on reviews):
My RSPB Clipboard – Discover the nature on your doorstep with a kit packed with activities and spotter sheets, plus a clipboard to take outside exploring. The perfect gift to engage nature-lovers and budding bird-watchers
Who is Sleeping? by Petr Horáček – Who is sleeping in the river, under the leaf and in the tree? Lift the flaps to find out and discover a sleepy surprise at the end
