My Book of Birds This unusual book depicts birds from around the UK in beautiful collage illustrations by a bird-loving artist - the combination leads to some stunning illustrations.

The birds are shown in their natural habitats as they hunt for food, impress their mates, nest, and care for their young. The illustrations are unusual and eye-catching and coupled with the descriptions and backgrounds, they make it easy to identify and remember the birds. Read on...

Dessineo Learn to Draw

The Dessineo learn to Draw is a new product from Jumbo's educational range. It aims to teach young children to draw in just 4 easy steps by using the included projector box and slides. Included are 30 slides, each of the transparent discs has 4 different steps of the drawing to complete. Once you have chosen the image you want to draw you simply attach the slide on to the turntable inside the projector box and then shut the lid. You then choose a background sheet, there are 10 included but they are A4 size so you can also use plain paper. There are guides on the projector box to help the paper stay in place. At this point the turntable with the slide on needs to be set to 'step 1'. The steps are clearly marked at the front of the projector box and you simply click round until you reach the first step. The on/off switch lights up the image so that the child can start drawing over the lines shown. Read on...
