JILL HARTLEY is a well known photographer who lives in Mexico, who has created several children's books.Review:
"This unusual and stylish little volume is great for learning first words ... sumptuous photography ..." -- Parenting Magazine (UK) November 2010
How I wish I had had these books sooner! In early years education, it is so important to use the familiar when teaching children words for things. In our school's library, we had a few beautiful picture books of fruits and vegetables, almost none of which grew in the tropical country where we were. Teachers diligently taught and tots diligently learned the words for foods that they almost never saw, imported foods that only the wealthy could afford, thus imparting a subconscious lesson that none desired or intended.
Now, Tara Books, the publishers of the exquisite book, The Night Life of Trees, have produced a wonderful alternative. Each of these lovely board books, Fruits of India, Vegetables of India, and Flowers of India, is a collection of beautiful photographs by Jill Hartley and Helmut Wolf. Those of the fruits show them cut to reveal the seeds. The photographs are of a very high quality, bright, close, with nicely balanced colour, so that the plants look real and natural, not like advertising images. The last page of each book gives the names of the fruits, vegetables or flowers, in English. I particularly like the choice of a matt as opposed to a glossy surface, making the entire product a much less harsh object for a small child.
These books are not only of value for children living in tropical countries where the plants represented surround them. They are also a wonderful, simple and affordable teaching tool for discussing the seasons of tropical countries. --Seasons South and North Blog, November 2010
