Written in a narrative style, this is the tale of a class looking at which animal they think is the most important animal of all, after learning all about them in the classroom. With seven different animals focused on, not only will children learn about different creatures, but they’ll find out all about how to look after them, too. Accompanied with beautiful illustrations from Hannah Bailey thought the book as well as ‘real life’ photographs, the reader will become immersed in information.
I particularly loved the way the information was given through the words of the child learning about it. I thought this was a really original way of sharing the information and making it really accessible to the reader. I also really enjoyed the combination of illustrations and photos. Bailey’s images were bright and engaging, while the photos gave some more realistic context of the animals and their habitats.
For me, my favourite was learning about sharks! Who knew there was a ‘cookie cutter’ shark?!
