Written by Gillian Candler & Illustrated by Fraser Williamson. Can you recognise a creature by its feet? Children will have fun guessing which animal they’ll see when they turn each page.
New Zealand native animals including birds, reptiles, an insect, a mammal and more reveal their feet for children to guess their identity. While having fun guessing whose feet belong to whom, young children will learn an important science concept about adaptation – that animals’ feet are adapted to their different habitats and lifestyles. Being encouraged to look closely at the pictures teaches observation skills and helps children discover how diverse our native animals are.
