A Walk in the Woods

Suitable for: Book Clubs

Take a walk through some of the UK’s native woodland to discover the wildflowers and animals that can be discovered there. An atmospheric soundtrack adds to the enjoyment.

Listen to an audio clip

Let's start with the badger at the left with the nose. This is large and rubbery and is used for snuffling in short grass and sucking up worms. Below the nose is a small indentation indicating the mouth. This is hiding a fearsome set of teeth and strong jaws. The badger is a carnivore so has incisors for subduing prey and tearing flesh and molars for grinding. It is also a fighter, defending its territory and breeding females. Moving to the right, feel a raised ridge. This indicates the black stripe which extends back to and beyond the ear. In the stripe feel the small round eye. This is also black and hidden in the black stripe for protection.

What's inside

A Super Book Members of our club used this book individually. They enjoyed recalling flowers and past experience of the countryside. The commentary was extremely helpful. Library Member
Like being taken for a virtual walk We used a 'Walk in the Woods' - this really does what it says! Its as if you are there. A great way of uniting both sighted and partially sighted residents as they are taken for a virtual walk. It is a lovely way to include partially sighted residents in an interesting outdoor activity.

You feel like you are really there You feel like you are really there. You actually see yourself walking in the woods. Library Member
Enjoyable We had a small group and held the session in the conservatory with doors open onto the garden. After listening to the pack we discussed and reminisced. Some residents thought the length of the dialogue was too long so in the future I will have more breaks. Library Member
