Description

'Boots! That's what every young explorer needs. This book shows you some of the things you might discover when you go out and about.' This lift-the-flap book is a fun way to help children take notice of and care for their immediate environment. Taking children on a walk of discovery to all the places that boots might be worn - the park, the woods and the pond - the simple message and flaps on each page encourage children to be still and quiet - and then they might notice little things like mice in wet grass, frogs in muddy puddles, tiny flowers and insects under logs, cheerful birdsong in the trees, and litter that needs picking up and taking home after a picnic. A truly involving book with a gentle environmental theme.show more

Review quote

This bright picture book invites young readers or listeners to join six exuberant children as they run through the countryside in gaily coloured boots. Boots are shown as sensible footwear for negotiating muddy puddles, marshy areas near ponds and damp grass. Young children love to lift flaps and here they will discover a spider, bumblebees, acorns and dragonflies. There is a lot to think and talk about. When exploring, you should not go too fast in case you miss small but interesting things like a bird's nest or tiny beetles. And, with a nudge towards environmental awareness, young children are urged to leave behind 'only your footprints'. This is an exciting, life enhancing and delightfully interactive book.A" Books for Keepsshow more
