Why Kate selected this book for the Kiwi Kids’ Bookstore ~ As you’d expect from a Potton & Burton book, this compendium of New Zealand’s wild animals is beautifully produced. Its hardcover format makes it a great class reference book. I love the colours – gentle and subtle, reflective of real life colours around us. The illustrations are stunning and the descriptions full of interesting facts like the father Archey’s frog carries his little froglets on his back until they are ready to live independently. A fantastic resource about Aotearoa’s mammals, fish, birds, amphibians and insects.
