Synopsis

A first board book about endangered animals by Rod Campbell, creator of the bestselling preschool classic Dear Zoo: lift the flaps to meet elephants, tigers, orangutans and more!

Babies and toddlers will love lifting the sturdy card flaps to discover five different endangered animals in their natural habitats. With a special fold-out ending that shows the difference conservation efforts have made to whales, Look After Us has a positive message about the importance of looking after our world and the animals that live in it.

This book features simple, repeating text on each page to encourage little ones to join in with reading the story, and bright colourful artwork.

Look After Us is the perfect first book to start talking to very young children about wildlife conservation and how important it is for us all to look after the natural world, from tigers and orangutans to elephants and camels.

“Really, it’s like planting a seed in children’s minds . . . I think, if you come to the idea of conservation when you’re young, it stays with you. And I think it grows." – Rod Campbell

Endangered species may seem a weighty topic for a board book for one to two year olds but Rod Campbell is, after all, the famed author of Dear Zoo – so if anyone knows how to talk simply and clearly to little ones, it’s him. Though toddlers might not understand the concept of endangered animals and conservation, they absolutely do understand the concept of looking after the things they love, and most toddlers love animals. Therefore, this lovely flap book is a great one to read together – to make the animal noises, enjoy the repeating text and the flaps, but also to ask each other, 'I would look after them. Wouldn’t you?'
