All children love being outside, exploring the natural world and using their creativity. From discovering the bugs that live at the bottom of the garden to learning about birds and animals or going wild in the woods, Nosy Crow’s brilliant collaboration with the National Trust has something for everyone!
Why not get creative this winter with The Colouring Book of Cards and Envelopes Christmas edition by Rebecca Jones. With 24 beautifully illustrated cards and envelopes to press out, fold and colour, this gorgeous book will keep little hands entertained for hours creating perfect personalised gifts.
For those who love sticker fun, discover a range of habitats and the brilliant birds and animals that live there with Nikki Dyson’s gorgeous Nature Sticker Books. With over 120 stickers and 11 different nature scenes in each book, plus loads of amazing facts, these are perfect for budding nature enthusiasts of all ages.
Take A Walk in the Countryside with very young readers, and discover numbers, letters, colours and opposites with Rosalind Beardshaw’s gorgeous board book series. With each book exploring a range of habitats, seasons, animals and birds, these are a wonderful introduction to nature for tiny adventurers.
And for older readers, why not make them laugh while they learn, with Ned the Nature Nut’s Nutty Nature Facts and Jokes. Written by Blue Peter Book Award winner Andy Seed and illustrated by the brilliant Sarah Horne, find out about everything from fantastic flowers and fungi to ridiculous rabbits and rats!
Working with the National Trust, which plays such a huge role in preserving Britain’s wildlife, habitats and historical buildings, has inspired us to focus on building a deep love of nature and the outdoors in young readers. Those who love nature as children will go on to protect nature as adults, and forging a connection with the natural world is at the heart of everything we publish. With conservation, cooking, gardening and a host of other exciting new titles and formats in the pipeline, Nosy Crow’s non-fiction publishing has never looked so verdant!
Look out next March for the first two titles in our beautiful new lift-the-flap series, Who’s Hiding on the River? and Who’s Hiding on the Farm? Mixing fantastic artwork from Katharine McEwen with hidden animals and fascinating facts, young readers will love exploring the 20 little flaps and finding out who’s hiding in which habitat.
And for older children and grown-ups, well . . . there’s nothing better than simply messing about in boats! Find out how to Go Wild on the River with our brilliantly informative pocket-sized guide containing everything you need to know, from how to spot river animals and birds to how build a raft or catch a fish . . . and even what to do in a river emergency! Illustrated in full-colour throughout by the brilliantly talented Rachael Saunders, find the book exclusively in National Trust shops from March 2018.
