Bush Birds Children's Book
Bridget Farmer's long awaited second book has arrived, and it is delightful.
The Bush Birds consists of twelve riddles for readers to guess which Australian native bird, commonly found in open forests or woodlands, is being depicted. Lift the hidden flap on each double page to find out the answer.
While less well known than the birds from her first book, Kookaburra Kookaburra, Bridget hopes that by interacting with the riddles and illustrations readers will soon familiarise themselves with these beautiful birds and find enjoyment in seeking them out in nature.
Information about each bird is included in the book, as well as a few tips for birding and helping with identifying your spottings!
The illustrations are all created from dry point etchings which have been hand coloured with watercolour paints.
This book is self published using Bridget Farmer's own publishing label - Black Cockatoo Books.
Written and illustrated by Bridget Farmer in country Victoria, near Castlemaine.
