A few words on Hello Nature
Hello Nature is a beautifully illustrated activity book by Nina Chakrabarti, who has used her distinctive style to illustrate the beauty in every season. Full of fun activities, the whole family can get involved in activities like ‘Draw your dream tree house’, ‘Make your own herbarium’, and ‘Grow your own cress heads’.
There are also activities that promote curiosity and exploration, such as ‘How to spot the difference between a frog and a toad’, and guides which prompt you to go out and identify garden birds and butterflies.
This is the perfect book to encourage families to get out of the house and celebrate the beginning of Spring. If its still feeling rather chilly, it also includes great winter-time activities such as drawing a spider spinning its web, a guide to snowflakes, collecting pine cones and acorns, ‘Open Your Own Bird Restaurant’ and guides to squirrels and hedgehogs.
Nina is the author of the bestselling My Wonderful World of Fashion and My Even More Wonderful World of Fashion (both published by Laurence King). You can see Nina at work in her studio here, and find her books online from www.laurenceking.com.
