Book and Game Combo Deal - THE BEACH BIRDS
The Beach Birds consists of twelve riddles for readers to guess which Australian native bird, commonly found on beaches, estuaries and coastal areas, is being depicted. Lift the hidden flap on each double page to find out the answer. I hope that by interacting with the riddles and illustrations readers will soon familiarise themselves with these beautiful birds and find enjoyment in seeking them out while at the beach.
Information about each bird can be found at the back, as well as a few tips for birding and helping with identifying your spottings!
Birds included in this book and game - Silver Gull, Crested Tern, Hooded Plover, Eastern Curlew, Pied Cormorant, Pied Oystercatcher, Masked Lapwing, Red-necked Stint, Pacific Gull, White-bellied Sea Eagle, Bar-tailed Godwit and Beach Stone-curlew.
The game consists of 48 cards - 4 sets of 12 designs depicting different native Australian birds commonly found in open forests and woodlands. The cards come in a sturdy 2 piece box.
The cards come with instructions on how to play a number of different games, such as Go Fish (Go Birding!), snap and memory games, as well as encouraging players to invent their own games with the cards. There are also 4 info cards with details about each bird.
The illustrations are all created from dry point etchings which have been hand coloured with watercolour paints.
