The Forest Fairies and the Great Battle by Margaret Roberts (Aardvark Press)
A cheerful South African picture book.
can I get it?
No-one knows more about our South African
environment and plants than Margaret Roberts, who brings her wide knowledge to
bear on this, the latest in a series of children’s books. Through the story she
manages to impart a lot of wonderful information, such as the uses of
peppermint tea and why bees are so important.
This won’t appeal to every child, as the language is quite
sophisticated. Perhaps as something to read with your child.
