In this board book version of David Attenborough – from the critically acclaimed,
multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series – discover the life of
the inspiring broadcaster and conservationist. Little David grew up in Leicester on the
campus of a university, where his father was a professor. As a child, he spent hours in
the science library, collating his own specimens and creating a mini animal museum.
When he was old enough to go to university, he studied science and zoology – but
what he wanted most of all was to be close to the animals he was studying. So, he
started working in television, visiting animals in their natural habitats and telling the
world the untold stories of these animals. Babies and toddlers will love to snuggle as
you read to them the engaging story of this fascinating broadcaster and natural
historian, and will also enjoy exploring the stylish and quirky illustrations of this sturdy
board book on their own.
