In the forest by Nancy Bevington

cover image

(Age: 0-3) Board Book. Themes: Forests. This is one in a new series for babies called Can you find? (others are Under the ocean, At the beach, On the farm). Nancy's previous titles have included the ZenTails and Mad Dog the chef series. In this book, each page says 'In the forest there are . . .' and then shows and names three things found in the forest (trees, leaves, rabbits, toadstools, butterflies, foxes, waterfalls, badgers, etc.) New Frontier publishes in the UK as well, hence the English references. The illustrations are large and the animals are happy and fun but quite realistically drawn. Each page has a contrasting background colour. The last page says 'Can you find all the things in the forest?' and shows all of the illustrations included within the previous pages. These are simple but impressive early vocabulary books that encourage parent-child interaction and positive book experiences for babies.
