This easy-to-follow, wildlife-spotting book for children introduces 50 of the most common birds, animals, plants and insects found in British urban areas.

This book has simple descriptions, with information about scientific names, size, food, life span and habitat. Stunning colour photographs will help with easy identification.

You can see urban wildlife in villages, towns and cities. There is wildlife every where, from the plants growing in pavement cracks to trees in a churchyard and the insects buzzing past your head. You can be a nature detective in lots of different places, such as in your local park, alongside canals and rivers, or even just walking down the street. Look up, down and around and you’ll be amazed at what you can see.

Find out how to become a nature detective and learn about protecting the wildlife all around you.

Perfect for the National Curriculum’s study of living things at KS1 and KS2.
