New version of an old favourite: “My First Animalia” by Graeme Base

my first animaliaA friendly new take on Graeme Base’s gorgeous 1986 classic, Animalia — now in an early-learning edition aimed at slightly younger children than the  original. Each page features two alphabet letters, with a few key-word illustrations per letter. The right-hand page then folds out to reveal the matching key-words, plus an image of the original Animalia page for that letter. It’s a lovely large-format hard-cover, and a great way of introducing new readers to Graeme Base.
