An exciting introduction to the weird world of animals in their natural surroundings.

Birds come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colours and live in varying habitats around the world...but why? Some birds use colours to camouflage themselves from predators or prey, others use their bright plumage for attracting mates, some have amazing-sounding calls, some can swim and some can even run faster than a car! Discover the world's strangest birds and learn all about why they are so weird!

Really Weird Animals, six books that take a close up look at some of the oddest animals on Earth. For children aged 7+.

Authors:
Clare Hibbert

Find out all about the first Britons, nomadic hunter-gatherers who came from mainland Europe to settle in England bringing wooden spears, flint handaxes and animals with them. Stone Age to Iron Age tells the story of how these people settled and began farming the land. They built villages of timber and stone houses such as Skara Brae on Orkney. Stonehenge is perhaps the most famous monument of this period, a technological marvel of the time built by raising over 80 blue stones to create the 'henge'. The Bronze Age bought with it metalworking using copper, tin and gold to make tools and beautiful everyday objects. The Iron Age was known for its hill forts, farming and art and culture. Contains maps, paintings, artefacts and photographs to show how early Britons lived. Ideally suited for readers age 8+ or teachers who are looking for books to support the new curriculum for 2014.
