Whether you're planning on enjoying a staycation in Ireland this summer or will be holidaying in your back garden (literally), then picking up Michael Fewer's Naturama is one investment that will hold its own throughout the school break.
The breathtakingly exciting new book introduces you to Ireland's flora and fauna with every changing season. Beautifully written by accomplished writer, Michael Fewer, and skillfully illustrated with Melissa Doran's captivating drawings, this book will encourage every reader, young and old, to get out there and see what they can find.
Each page is a discovery of the magic of nature right on your doorstep, from the back garden to the local park and the countryside. Even the smallest garden is a vast canvas of nature with its worms, insects, flowers and birds.
Listen to the blackbird's song, spot an madra rua in your local town, discover why the ash tree is good for making hurleys, count a slug's 27,000 teeth, watch stags fight and spot jellyfish at the seaside, laughing as you discover the meaning of their Irish name, smugairle róin.
It's time to get the kids away from the screens and into the world; put your boots on - it's time to go outside.
