Series: My first word books
By Holly Bathie
From squirrels and hedgehogs to sea horses and star fish, there are over 200 familiar words for children to discover and talk about in this delightful word book. Each word is accompanied by a friendly illustration, and the words are grouped into themes such as woodland animals, birds, flowers and plants and on the shore.
Holly Bathie grew up in Devon, where she spent all her time reading rather than going outside in the fresh air. After university, she moved to Oxford to briefly work in the theatre before moving to children’s publishing. Until the age of 7 she wanted to be an acrobat, a lollipop lady, a lawyer or a comedienne before deciding the best job would be to create Usborne books, so she is thrilled to be finally doing it! In her spare time she enjoys all kinds of dancing and performs with an amateur theatre group.
