We love Matt Sewell’s books, and Penguins and other Sea Birds is another example of what he does best, introducing us to a wide variety of sea birds together with his delightful descriptions and his very beautiful illustrations, There is also a Spotting and Jotting section at the back and while you may have to look further afield for some of the examples this delightful book can stimulate the interest about birds in general with your little ones this Easter Holiday. Highly Recommended!
