“Boomy the bittern lived in a wetland. A wetland of pools, islands, ditches and dykes…”
Boomy the Bittern tells the story of a family of bitterns as they go about life in their wetland home: hiding in the reeds, bringing up their young, squelching through the mud and scooping up fish to eat. But when the wetlands are drained by humans, where will the bitterns go?
Complete with beautiful illustrations by wildlife artist Sally Mills and a captivating, informative narrative by Pam Earnshaw, Boomy the Bittern makes a wonderful bedtime story for any nature lover.
With text designed to develop children’s reading skills, it also provides the perfect teaching tool to positively engage young readers in discussions about wildlife conservation and climate change.
