Wild in the City
A lift-the-flap book to explore the urban wildlife hidden around us!
How much do we know about our non-human neighbours? When we talk about city animals, we often think of cats and dogs. But there are other species that live alongside us in the hidden corners of towns and cities.
Our neighbourhoods are full of wild animals, animals of every kind! Some of them can be found in parks and gardens, but others find shelter in the buildings or at home.
With this amazing lift-the-flap book, the little explorers will be able to play I Spy… And discover the secret lives of 20 extraordinary creatures that share our cities.
Shall we go for a walk? Don’t forget the explorer’s kit! Take out the binoculars, lift the flaps and find out where wild animals live. When you turn the page, you will find detailed information on each species.
