Series: Shine-a-Light Books
A vegetable garden grows under the sun. If you look closely between the stalks, beneath the leaves, and under the soil, you will spot the animals and plants living there.
Hold a page up to the light to reveal what is hidden in and around the vegetable garden, and discover a small world of great surprises. The clever see-through reading technique creates an experience of
interactive learning, showing both the surface and what is hidden
underneath at the same time.
Author Carron Brown has been a children's non-fiction editor and writer for more than 16 years. She's a keen explorer of the small worlds around her, whether that's watching things grow in her tiny garden, or sitting On the Plane. Or imagining what's happening On the Space Station. The amazing see-through pages in this gorgeously illustrated non-fiction series offer benefits similar to lift-the-flaps books, (that is, they're great for early development, they deal with the idea of object permanence), but the Shine-a-Light books have the added interactive dimension of the child being able to see the surface and the hidden picture at the same time.Both a visual treat and lots of fun, all of the Shine-a-Light books also offer a glossary and additional information about their subjects, making them non-fiction gift books like no other.
Over 200,000 copies of the Shine-a-Light series have been sold.
