Bright colourful backgrounds and realistic illustrations make this board book a perfect introduction to the natural world of New Zealand plants for young children. Including trees, shrubs, climbers, grasses, flaxes and ferns, children will recognise flowers and foliage found in their
everyday environment. Trees are shown with figures drawn to scale for additional reference. English and Maori names are included for
every plant and an accompanying board book, NZ Shore and Sea, brings the board book series to four titles now available for parents wanting to explore New Zealand’s natural world with their children.
Dave Gunson’s engaging illustration style is a proven winner with young children.
