Raising a tiny explorer means I am constantly seeking out new inspirations for her. She loves learning about animals and thirsts for picture books that she can use for her endless artworks. Animalium Curated by Katie Scott & Jenny Broom is the perfect book. Set up like a museum, Animalium explains how animals have evolved over time, shows little people inside the dissection laboratory and introduces animals from every corner of the earth.
In Piper’s words, “this book is filled with the prettiest and scariest animals and I like skates and I want to read this book forever.” Animalium kept her captivated and her little eyes widened as she studied the amazingly detailed illustrations and asked a million questions about each one! Each chapter in the book features a different branch from the tree of life, from reptiles to birds to mammals. Boys and girls alike will love this endlessly inspired find.
A book that can be read again and again, used for school projects, drawing stimulus and even as the perfect wall display on a shelf above their beds. The first of a series of “virtual museums” by the same creators. We have added it to her birthday need list.
