Plume by Isabelle Simler

Such a beautiful book: without needing any words it show us a series of birds and their typical plumes and feathers.

However, in every page there is something strange… what could it be the shadows that seems so interested in plumes and feathers?

The illustrations are realistic and truly beautiful, a small jewel.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.

The Tiny Tale of Little Pea by Davide Cal

Little Pea is quite small since he was born, but his size did not stop him in enjoying himself: he learned to swim, to climb and he explored the garden from his small point of view.

But what could he do for a living being so small? No problem! Little Pea is very creative and he does not stops against  any problem.

The book is nice, a few sentences that are only a comment to the illustrations.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.

Engineered! by Shannon Hunt

Who are the engineers? And what kind of innovation did they bring to humanity? The book covers the main fields of engineering and some examples of innovations and idea developed in these fields.

Useful the introductory part, where the author proposes a methodology to evaluate an idea, including data gathering and testing.

This book is for older children: the text constitutes the main source of information and it contains also technical terminology. The illustration helps in making the book appealing to the eye.

Shelter by Céline Claire

A storm is coming; in the wood every animal is working to make their nest comfortable for winter.

During the storm two foreign bears come to the forest, and all the animals are quite worried: “who are they?” “what do they want?”. The two strangers ask for help to every family, but nobody wants to have them in their own home.

While the snow begin to fall, the fox family is experiencing a problem, their house is almost crumbling, and they have to go out, who will help them?

A nice story, told in watercolours.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
