For my stop on this epic blog tour, I get to share a brilliant eco-adventure for newly confident readers: ‘Lottie Loves Nature: Frog Frenzy.’
In this instalment, Lottie decides to make a pond in her back garden to encourage local wildlife. Her techy neighbour Noah’s is drafted in to help help, but is distracted by his dad, who is determined to rid their garden of an army of annoying ants. Suddenly Noah’s dad’s golfing green is swarming with ants and a multitude of frogs – hopping mayhem! Noah is convinced that escaping to Mars would be easier than facing his dad, but Lottie is keen to save the planet one creature at a time!
This book is a brilliant blend of fact and fiction and could easily be used in schools to encourage scientific thinking. The pages from Lottie’s notebook and fact files add further interest to the story, along with all the fantastic illustrations.
Sure to fire-up any readers’ imagination and passion to help save our planet. The perfect introduction to caring for all living creatures on this planet for readers aged 5+
HOT OFF THE PRESS!!! ‘Lottie Loves Nature: Bee-ware,’ comes out in January 2021 – when Lottie’s neighbour discovers a nest of bees in his garden he goes to call an exterminator. But Lottie has to persuade him to call a beekeeper and save the bees. Every living creature matters.
