My bottom's on the top of me; my mouth is where? Underneath. Anne Hunter's playful and delightful rhymes... along with Dave Gunson's superb illustrations, perfectly capture the unique characteristics of a range of creatures and plant life that young children commonly encounter when exploring the New Zealand seashore. Rhyming verse delightfully details some of the special features of triplefins, hermit crabs, scallops, jellyfish, sea anemonies, seaweed, black-backed gulls, paddle crabs, paua, katipo, sponges and starfish. This entertaining book is intended to be read aloud and children will be fascinated to learn more about the wild life on the seashore so they can enjoy exploring when visiting the beach. There is a fascinating facts section to supplement the verse at the back of the book.

              Kids are fascinated with watching things move. From an early age they love mechanical toys that go click and whirr and they delight in finding out how machines work. From the great waka canoes hollowed out from tree-trunks, to jet boats, motorbikes, racing cars and high-tech spac...e rockets, New Zealand has produced some amazing machines. The earliest models engaged the muscles of men and horses, together with wind and water. Then steam power became available and machines became increasingly more complicated. Petrol, diesel, and electricity followed. This book traces the history of NZ machines through examples from first settlement to the modern age.Inspiring kids to learn and discover how things work, writer and illustrator Dave Gunson presents large colour pictures of 50 machines with lively and informative text descriptions alongside. There are many home-grown successes, plus lots of machines from overseas, adapted for local conditions.Full colour illustrations with accurate, often humorous text aimed at children. Ideal non-fiction learning tool for reluctant readers.
