A look inside...!
They rely on a platform made of sea ice
to hunt and travel, nothing else will suffice
as temperatures rise and melt this platform
look to see what's revealed as it takes on new form
Striking with wings of orange, white and black
they fly thousands of miles, north and back
migratory patterns which are the norm
are disrupted when it's extremely cold or warm
Change to its surroundings makes us think
it is as if the mountains shrink
becoming rocks then mounds of snow
reducing to puddles until there's nowhere to go
The giant panda relies on bamboo
it provides most of its food, and water too
as rainfall increases it could flood the bamboo
what then is the panda to do?
ONLY A FEW COPIES LEFT!
The Search for Silva
Fiona has written and beautifully illustrated a children's sophisticated picture book. Called The Search for Silva, it is written from the point of view of animals, in the genre of an armchair treasure hunt. It is aimed at promoting compassion and empathy towards animals.
It follows a welcome swallow, Sam, who, on the way to the dawn chorus, meets a cow called Cindy. Cindy is upset as she has lost her calf, Silva. Sam teams up with Cindy to find Silva and they meet other animals on their journey and learn of their experiences. There are clues, both in the text and illustrations, as to the whereabouts of Silva, as he is somewhere in New Zealand. Be the first to work out Silva's location and a prize awaits you!
The Search for Silva is a 32-page book with 15 illustrations. It is aimed at 8-10 year olds but doesn't exclude readers either side of this age bracket. It is an educational, yet fun and engaging, look at animal's lives and the influence people can have on them. Copies cost NZ$24.99 each. Shown opposite and below are some of the illustrations from the book.
