A pretty book for young children.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Where the Forest Meets the Sea (Big Books) (Paperback)
This is a pretty picture book with few words. It is basically a collection of pictures of collages based on an Australian rain forest. Although the pictures are pretty and very well constructed there is not really enough striking content in them to hold a child's attention for more than a couple of minutes. The suggestion that the large edition of the book is suitable for classroom use is somewhat limited by the absence of any accompanying notes explaining or discussing the books contents. Remember, the teacher is likely to be as unfamiliar with a rain forest as the children.
