What to look for in the Garden – a Ladybird Books exhibition

Our family bloggers Bibi, Leo and Oliver went to the family-friendly Ladybird Books Exhibition recently and sent this review. You can visit it at the Garden Museum until 27 October 2019.

 
So way before we had iPhones, iPads and the Computers to check on Google for information,  we used the iconic illustrated Ladybird Books.  I was fascinated by these little books as a child so see this collection of books with the instantly recognisable artwork was so mesmerising and it certainly brings back a lot of fond memories.  
 
The Ladybird Books are colourful with beautiful artwork that teaches children about the natural world.  
 
 
There are many memorable books on display, books on wildlife, what to look for in spring, summer, autumn and winter, fruits and flowers, pets and trees, British birds and their nesting, wild flowers and wildlife, the life of a honey bee.

Leo said that he loves the compact size of the book and that he can take it everywhere.  He loves the picture books about bees.  
 
 
Oliver loves the variety of books and said he wishes children could have access to reading books like these rather than looking on the internet for interesting wildlife facts.  I agree this this sentiment especially for young children the ladybird books are aimed at.  
 
 
Children should read and enjoy books over and over, having fun feeling and turning the pages rather than click, swipe and stare.  
 
 
Take a wander down to this family-friendly exhibition currently at the Garden Museum until 27 October 2019.
