The Beach Birds ~ Book
The Beach Birds consists of twelve riddles for readers to guess which Australian native bird, commonly found on beaches, estuaries and coastal areas, is being depicted. Lift the hidden flap on each double page to find out the answer. I hope that by interacting with the riddles and illustrations readers will soon familiarise themselves with these beautiful birds and find enjoyment in seeking them out while at the beach.
Suitable for ages 2 to 10. Young children will enjoy being read to and finding the lift the flaps, older children might enjoy answering the riddles and the more detailed info at the back.
Information about each bird can be found at the back, as well as a few tips for birding and helping with identifying your spottings!
The illustrations are all created from dry point etchings which have been hand coloured with watercolour paints.
