How to write AND illustrate a truly inspiring children's book
Ever heard of Maurice Sendak?!? Of course you have, because he's the most famous children's author of all time (and honestly, who doesn't love Where the Wild Things Are?). But...
Beautifully written and illustrated
Parents are working with the book teaching child who has very short concentration and outbursts of frustration. She’s working with specialist.
Loved reading this book to the children, the conversation after was very educational. This book should be in every classroom, preschool and home.
The World Under Wings is an excellent book for young people. It’s written so younger children can understand what is happening to the world. I highly recommend this book.
Bought these for the school library and the teachers loved them
A very moving and thought provoking book suitable for the young to read about or be read to.
It was very well done and details what is happening to the world today.
Congrats to the author on a great book.
Great stories, love the illustrations. Fantastic that authors have addressed situations and explained it in terms that young children can understand.
In this story, we travel around the world with arctic terns and see the consequences of human activity and the destruction of habitats. We soar across frozen landscapes and oceans, fly through desserts and forests and hover above cities. We’re introduced to a variety of animals, from the wild and exotic to more familiar creatures we see every day. This broadens the book’s appeal to young readers - my kids are especially fond of the baby penguin.
The World Under Wings is a lyrical ode to a planet in peril and a hopeful tale which hopes to bring about change. Inspired by the migration of the artic terns, this story outlines the journey that humans can take to help protect the natural world. Striking illustrations (my favourites are the snow scenes and starry skies) support a rhyming text which reinforces the power of positive actions and how even small steps can make a difference. This beautiful book impresses the importance of caring for the environment on children and adults alike.
Beautifully illustrated and a wonderful story, my children love it.
Our granddaughter is way too young for this book yet but I know that her mum will love teaching her this new alphabet, conscious learning for a better world : )

My grandson loves it! The illustrations are good conversation starters so much so we often get caught up in our own stories😊. We're looking forward to getting more.
Received this book very promptly
And I loved it
My granddaughter loved it just as much, what beautiful book
This book was an easy and fun read to my grandchildren. The rhymes made it easy to read and captured the attention of the kiddies. A very clever book about Covid-19 in a child friendly manner that enabled me to explain how other countries in our world had to deal with the pandemic. We were far luckier in Australia.
