Wild World by Angela McAllister

I rarely come across non-fiction poetry picture books especially ones that are so stunning! Hvass and Hannibal, the illustrators, capture the beautiful wilderness in all its diversity brilliantly.

Angela McAllister uses her powerful and moving poetry to describe the animals and plants of the various habitats, raising awareness of the dangers they face and our connections to them. Simply gorgeous!

We had fun playing ‘spot the animal’ on each double page spread and then learned about the specific problem threatening each habitat. We particularly liked the ‘Woodlands’ page because we have seen these animals in the wild around where we live. There are also very useful tips on what we can do to save the different ecosystems.

A real gem of a book and definitely worth a read.

Wild World, written by Angela McAllister, illustrated by Hvass & Hannibal and published by Wide Eyed Editions.
