The Borneo Animals series is a set of books to introduce young children to some animals that can be found in Malaysia. Growing up, author Beverly had close encounters with many wild animals. To listen to her talk of them is both fascinating and informative and we are glad she has decided to put pen to paper. These books are for the very young, from 3-5 years. There isn't a lot of text but it is succinct and fun to read and recite.
One can imagine reading the text along with hand movements and facial expressions, such as 'Slowly, silently, slow loris is never in a hurry'. Then get the children to act it out with you. Crawl, stomp, roll and recite.
In addition, these books are printed entirely on thick card and sewn in the centre, with wraparound cover. They are in a good square size, making them friendly for both children and the adults reading to them. - See more at: https://www.oyezbookstore.com/blog#sthash.s91Hdr1s....
BEVERLEY HON spent her childhood playing with wild animals – at home, in the jungle and at the zoo – and grew up with flying foxes, slow lorises, a civet cat and wild boar as pets. She was a journalist with The Star for 13 years and has been involved in cheerleading since she was 14. Beverley has now paired her love for animals and writing with her knack for rhyming in this upcoming series.
