'For sharp eyes only' Illustrated by Elaine Lyons, written by Nita C. Lester
While admiring the colours and shapes of seed pods, leaves, flowers and bark, you are often surprised by the appearance of birds, insects, marsupials and reptiles. These aninmas blend so prefectly, they often go unnoticed. Two children venture around a garden and numerous animals are sighted hidden amongst the Australian landscape.
Suitable to read aloud to pre-schoolers or for independent readers of all ages. All proofs benefit Myall Park Botanic Garden
'Micky's music' written by Lyn Reilly
Micky’s Music is a delightful story about Micky (Mictyris) the soldier crab who explores the beach, looking for a way to make his own kind of music.
The author Lynette Reilly, biologist and bird-watcher, allows children to absorb information about the natural world while they enjoy Micky’s adventures told in verse.
Suitable for reading aloud to pre-schoolers or for independent readers of all ages.
Available for $5 plus postage from the author (phone 07 5537 3354) or from Myall Park Botanic Garden .
