Gorgeous, sparkly new cover edition for this much-loved children's book. A wonderful introduction to the natural world, with pictures to explore again and again. Imagine yourself deep in the jungle, under the sea, in a land of ice and snow, on a farm, in the moonlit bush, on an African plain, in a prehistoric swamp...Then turn the page and find all the animals living there. A wonderful introduction to the natural world with intricate pictures to explore again and again, and a key to help you name all the animals.

      Comments about Imagine:

      Both my two and four year old are obsessed with this book. I think it's easy to understand for all ages as you can get as detailed or as basic as you like spotting the different animals on the pages. For this reason it would also be good for older kids too who might like to learn the names of all the different types of dinosaurs etc. Very imaginative read and beautifully illustrated.
