Children will learn how to create their own vivid illustrations through step-by-step instructions and discover a new appreciation for wildlife. Nicola's animal notes coupled with the eye for detail evident in Abbie's bright and characterful illustrations introduce young readers to the observation and appreciation of wild creatures, an essential skill as the world's species diminish. This book looks to cultivate that interest, as well as providing children with a playful and creative activity through which to express themselves.
