Product Description

Book Description

Wonderwise books bridge the gap between stories and facts, perfect for building children's love of learning and reading. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Mick Manning (born in Yorkshire, England, 1959) and Brita Granström (born in Eskilstuna, Sweden, 1969) work together as a team sharing the illustration and text. They have been producing award-winning non-fiction picture books for almost twenty years. They show that the best non-fiction for children can be scholarly, albeit with a light touch, and can have some of the imagination-stretching qualities of fiction. They are well known for their exciting performances involving readings and live drawing using overhead camera projection (often involving participation from members of the audience) all mixed with an audio-visual presentation. They appear on a regular basis at major UK book festival venues such as Bath, Cheltenham and Edinburgh International Book Festival. They have appeared at The Royal Society Science Festival and have celebrated The Big Draw at various venues including The Imperial War Museum. They have worked closely to support libraries and schools, performing voluntarily to school classes in the UK and Sweden. Most recently they visited the American Library Association Conference, Texas where they also visited a Hispanic school and libraries in the area. Many of Manning & Granström's books are translated into a number of languages, including Chinese, German, Greek, Danish, Japanese, Norwegian, Swedish and Slovakian. For the last 12 years Mick & Brita have created, written and illustrated a monthly 5-page gentle pre-school series called 'Max and Kate' for the critically acclaimed US children's magazine Ladybug. http://www.mickandbrita.com Selection of Franklin Watts books: The World Is Full of Babies!

Format:Paperback
Great for the child with a mind on mechanics or who constantly asks 'what does it do?' rather than 'why?'. There's all the fun of playing with water and where our everyday water actually comes from, and cross sections showing the journey from the reservoir to your sinks and toilets and then to the sewage system. Although a good book to read and explore with your child, the pictorial details are clear enough for a child to peruse alone.

Format:Paperback
Aimed at children aged 4 to 6, this is educational but fun. It goes through the whole water cycle in an amusing way with fun illustrations.
