Animal Activity • Bloomsbury, 2017

Illustrated by Nikalas Catlow

The wild little sister to Self-Destructing Science: Space, which was shortlisted for the ASE Science Book of the Year 2016.

Prepare to make jumping bugs, design your own dinosaur and inflate a puffer fish. Are you ready to explore the wild with this self-destructing, action-packed activity book?

Snap it up from May 2017…

This book is jam-packed with paper crafts with a nature focus and a healthy smattering of science too. There's activities to cut out and make on every page, including jumping froghoppers, a duck whistle, beehive-like honeycomb, piecing together a dinosaur skeleton and making paper flowers bloom by sitting them on a saucer of water. Each activity looks like fun, with vibrant green and yellow images contrasting with black and white. The activities are clearly explained and extra materials are usually things found at home, like scissors, pen and string. My 8-year-olds could complete most things on their own. Animal Activity is written by #IsabelThomas, illustrated by #NikalasCatlow @postthisbook_official, published by #Bloomsbury @bloomsburypublishing. #bibliophile #bookstagram #instabook #kids #bookworm #kidscraft #schoolholidays
