Secrets of Winter

What is hidden in the world around us? For ages 3 and up, the uniquely designed Shine-A-Light series of books uncovers the facts behind a diverse range of places and topics through hidden images that are revealed by light. First, view a full-colour scene and read about what is pictured – but what else is there? Shine a torch behind the page, or hold it up to the light, to reveal what is hidden. Turn the page to read fun facts about the hidden image in black and white. A world of surprises awaits!

Meet some amazing animals and learn how they adapt to winter! From the bears in their lairs and the foxes in their dens, to the squirrels and birds in the treetops, discover nature’s secrets about the animals and plants that live in and around a snow-covered forest. Then hold each page up to a bright light to reveal a hidden image! A wonderful first introduction to nature in winter with a unique design that adds a whole new dimension of enjoyment for children. A fun and innovative non-fiction title for your child’s bookshelf.

Our Review Panel says...

This Shine-a-Light book invites readers to interact by shining a torch through each page to reveal hidden details in the pictures, such as the intricate pattern of the snowflakes or the animals hibernating inside their snuggly homes. The pictures, hidden images and text work together to create a perfectly interactive information book about seasonal changes during winter. Remember to supply a torch too!
