Book Description

Prize-winning non-fiction picture books with lively narrative text

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
I decided to read this book to my Year 2 (ages 6 and 7)class because we had a spare five minutes before our literacy lesson ... the children were so fascinated with the book and had so many questions and points to discuss around the text that it ended up taking over forty minutes! They were fascinated by all the things going on - literally under their feet! - and wanted to know more than the book actually told us, although I think there was a good amount of detail within the pages. The illustrations were informative without being too 'text book'-like, and it did feel like a lovely mixture between a story book and a non fiction book. It is certainly a book that bears going back to again and again.

A really educational book that builds up and allows children to join in. Tackles a tricky concept for young children to grasp.
