Introducing First Explorers!

25 January 2017

By Campbell Books

happy new year from campbell books!

we are thrilled to kick off 2017 with a brand-new series, first explorers! with push, pull, and sliding mechanisms, this series is perfect for inquisitive toddlers and pre-schoolers.

explore a meadow, busy farm, dark street and noisy garden in first explorers: night animals illustrated by jenny wren. meet owls, foxes, bats and lots of other familiar – and not so familiar – animals who come out at night-time.

or, you could dive into busy rockpools, beautiful coral reefs, icy oceans, and the deep, dark sea in first explorers: sea creatures, illustrated by chorkung. meet turtles, jellyfish, penguins and lots of other amazing creatures who live under the sea.

each scene has chunky push, pull and sliding mechanisms, animals to spot, bite-size facts about the creatures, and questions for your child to interact with the scene. beautifully illustrated, this series has gentle learning and is a magical introduction to the natural world.

look out for more from the first explorers series later in the year, with two further titles coming in june!
