Pairs: In the Garden

Written by Smriti Prasadam-Halls

Illustrated by Lorna Scobie

Part of the Pairs Series

LoveReading View on Pairs: In the Garden

Pairs! In the garden offers a memory game, an interactive information book and a very attractive picture book all in one.  Busy, bright spreads introduce readers to mini-beasts, inviting them in sprightly rhyme to ‘explore a world of flowers and trees, of butterflies and honey bees’. Amongst illustrations of plants, flowers and insects are hidden seven flaps per page, and there’s a challenge to lift the flaps to find the matching pair of bees, snails, grasshoppers etc. Readers can also spot and count other items on each spread. It’s lovely to look at and lots of fun and also provides opportunities to learn about the natural world. A good book to pop in the bag for a journey, or to look at before a trip to the park. ~ Andrea Reece

Pairs: In the Garden Synopsis

Lift the flaps to find the matching pairs in this fun novelty series that's all about habitats! This book has seven die-cut flaps on every spread for little ones to lift to find the matching pairs, and spot the odd one out. Lift stones to find snails, grass to find ladybirds and lettuce leaves to find caterpillars, then answer a simple counting question.

The first two books in the series are Underwater and In the Garden.

Printed on sturdy card, perfect for little hands, these books provide enjoyment while out and about or at home, as well as teaching important recognition and memory skills.
