My First Book of Southern African Animal Tracks

My first book of Southern African Animal Tracks introduces 55 different types of animals and the footprints they leave behind. The animals and birds included are those that you are likely to find on visits to nature reserves or game parks – or even in gardens.

My First Book of Southern African Birds - Volume 1

A very first guide to birds for children aged 3 to 7, this title presents 56 of the most striking and commonly seen southern African species. After a brief introduction that explains how the title works and provides simple guidelines for watching birds, each new page introduces a new bird.

My First Book of Southern African Birds - Volume 2

Following the success of My first book of Southern African Birds, volume 2 introduces a further 58 fascinating birds found at the seashore, rivers and lakes, in grasslands and forests, and also in suburban gardens. Striking full-colour illustrations are accompanied by brief descriptions in four languages, and there are visual clues to diet, nest, footprint and each bird’s relative size.

My First Book of Southern African Creepy-Crawlies

The title covers 58 spiders, snails, millipedes and other creatures (excluding insects) that are likely to be seen around the home and garden. An illustrated introduction gives context to the subject, and then each page features: a vivid, full-colour illustration; clear, informative text and visual clues for both pre- and beginner readers; translation into 3 other languages – Afrikaans, Xhosa and Zulu; simple graphics conveying the creatures’ size, what it eats and when it is active. 

My First Book of Southern African Frogs

Frogs are appealing and colourful creatures and live just about anywhere, even in deserts. My first book of Southern African Frogs introduces 55 different types of frog and their calls – made instantly accessible in this new edition by scanning a QR code. A short introduction outlines the main features of frogs and includes an illustration detailing their life cycle.

My First Book of Southern African Insects

Children are fascinated by ‘bugs’ of all kinds, and insects are a familiar part of their everyday environment. Dragonflies and ants, beetles and stick insects, butterflies and bees are just some of the many insects that are found in the home and garden, providing youngsters with a handy introduction to the natural world.

My First Book of Southern Africa Ocean Life

Young children will enjoy discovering the 58 fascinating ocean creatures in My first book of Southern African ocean life, which range in size from the earth's largest animal – the blue whale – to the tiniest plankton. 

My First Book of Southern African Mammals

Mammals come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, from tiny bats and mice to massive elephants and whales. This title introduces a cross-section of southern African mammals - 58 animals illustrated in full colour, along with easy text and visual clues as to the animals' size, their tracks and what they eat.

My First Book of Southern African Seashore Life

The title covers 58 sea creatures and plants that are likely to be seen at the shore. An illustrated introduction gives context to the subject, and then each of the featured specimens gets a vivid, full-colour illustration; simple, informative text; translation into three other languages – Afrikaans, Xhosa and Zulu; visual clues about the creatures' diet, size, distribution round our coast, locomotion and exactly where they live relative to the water line. 

My First Book of Southern African Snakes and Other Reptiles

My first book of Southern African snakes and other reptiles introduces 56 different species, with accurate, full-colour illustrations accompanied by concise text and simple graphics that depict where the reptile lives, what it eats, how it reproduces, and how big it is when fully grown. In addition to snakes, the title also features lizards, geckos, skinks, tortoises and turtles - of all shapes and sizes, some dangerous and to be treated with caution, others harmless, some rare, and all part of the fragile chain of life.

Birds of a feather

From the beginning of time - or somewhere around then - we humans have lived and worked alongside animals to really help us develop. We're talking cows for milk, horses for labour, dogs for companionship and protection, all of that jazz.

When it comes to birds and their feathers, we've also found plenty of things to make. We use feathers for lures in fly-fishing, we use them to make fletching (the tail bits of arrows), Harry Potter used feathers to write exams and do homework (though we still think a ballpoint pen would have been a lot more practical), you name it!

Now, we're not really up to fly-fishing or archery in this weather, and we certainly aren't interested in writing on parchment (again, had Hogwarts never heard of exam pads?) But a use for a feather we can really get behind (or under) is in our deal on 100% feather duvets from Duck Feather.
