Hello there. My name is Jan and I'm here to tell you about this beautiful book 'Rainbow Bird'. It's written by Eric Maddern and the pictures were drawn by Adrienne Kennaway. On the cover of the book is a picture of the brightly coloured Rainbow Bird with her wings outstretched as she flies off a tree branch towards us.
Now, open the cover of the book pause and here you will find a hard plastic page, which is your first feely picture.
Feel all over the strange creature here. pause It's a crocodile, and his long body is curved round almost in a circle. Do you know much about crocodiles? They are strange reptiles who live on land and in water.
