With its beautiful artwork and retro styling, Lots certainly catches the eye – but this is a book that delivers more than just good looks.
Nicola Davies is a prize-winning author with a deep understanding of her target audience, and her ability to craft a non-fiction text is rarely matched. Themes such as biodiversity, the interdependence of living creatures and the importance of caring for our planet are explored with authority, humour and restraint.
Words and pictures work together to present material in a way that enables children to connect and get involved. This is non-fiction that’s a pleasure to share in the KS1 classroom and offers a rich starting point for science and maths activities, as well as literacy, drama and art.
