Snuggled Away is a richly visual, rhyming story that explores the habits of Australia’s nocturnal animals. As you go to sleep, animals all around Australia are busy caring for young and searching for food. This beautifully illustrated children’s book about Australian wildlife features: ringtail possums, sugar gliders, powerful owls, carpet pythons, pygmy possums, bettongs, wombats, bandicoots, phascogales, marsh frogs and tree frogs, honey possums, bush-stone curlews, pademelons, quolls and bilbies.
While making an attractive light-hearted bedtime story, Snuggled Away is also gently educational, covering both well-known Australian animals and less familiar wildlife. Interesting facts follow the main story and both children and parents can learn from the pictorial catalogue of the featured animals, accompanied by their scientific and common names, at the back of the book. With 34 full page illustrations, this book is perfect for budding nature explorers.
Designed primarily to be read aloud to children in preschool and early primary, Snuggled Away will also delight older siblings, parents and grand-parents.
Hard Cover, 40 pages, 34 edge to edge illustrations.
