Little children love to have charming facts about insects read to them. In our travels to international book fairs (responding to the overseas interest in the Fitzroy Readers), we came across a beautiful set of 4 science readers.
The artwork is delightful. We have had the text adapted for use in Australian schools by Australian scientists including Professor Sir Gustav Nossal AC CBE and science writer Helen Gardiner.
The text has Australian vocabulary and spelling - and includes some local nature facts.
The stories are charmingly told, from the insect's point of view - without too much text, and with plenty of vital information. We have proudly added these to our catalogue of reading materials (for older primary) or as true science story-telling for younger children.
