MEET THE ECONUTS
Dewy, Woosh, Petals, Pebbles and Waggy call themselves the Econuts because they are simply nuts about ecology and the environment!
Learn all about the many ways in which you can help save Planet Earth in this series of story-and-activity books, aimed at generating ecological awareness through a mix of fiction, puzzles, games, activities and more.
Waggy is puzzled. He’s noticed some very odd-looking paw prints around town. Whom do they belong to? Waggy and the Econuts decide to investigate. What they discover shocks them! Read on to find out what that is!
I loved the way the author has introduced the concept of endangered and rare animals for children using a story where five friends are out to solve the mystery of the paw prints. She has used beautiful illustrations and different mind games like crossword, riddles, rhyming words, find out hidden words, matching, animal identification from paw prints, animal sounds, unscrambling words, a maze, and also some space for the child to record the activities done by them. There are activities like making a bird feeder and a paper aquarium. She has used the book to make the reader understand how we can stop the animals from getting extinct or endangered. The best part of the book is the animal champion stickers.
I loved the book and recommend it to all children and their parents.
