The Sky Guys

Madeleine Rogers (Illustrator)


Teach your children about our feathered friends with this fun and educational book, part of a series that explores the natural world. The series has three existing titles: The Safari Set, The Polar Pack and The Jungle Crew, and two new titles exploring sea creatures and forest animals: The Marine Team and The Forest Folk. Five birds - a flamingo, owl, hummingbird, albatross and pelican - are explored through rhyme and pictures. With two spreads dedicated to each bird, adults will be able to read the short playful rhyme on each spread to children and look at the bright illustrations to teach them about their habits and environment. The book also features some fun facts about each animal on the inside back cover.

About the Author

Madeleine Rogers started her company, Mibo, in 2001 with the aim of creating well-designed, lasting products for the home. From humble beginnings selling lampshades at Old Spitalfields Market in London, she was soon having orders from stores such as Liberty and the Conran shop. Since then, Mibo has expanded its range to include make-at-home products for children and a range of children's accessories. Madeleine's Mibo series now consists of six activity set hardbacks and a range of Mibo stationery alongside this series of board books, all with Button Books.


"A stylish collection of books which will appeal to children and adults... Great to see books for very young children that teach them to appreciate nature. The illustrations are eye-catching, with simple lines and colours that are perfectly designed to capture children's attention... This is a lovely series to collect, and to introduce children to the natural world."--Parents in Touch "http: // "
"The illustrations are modern, fun and vibrant, offering plenty to look at, and not just the animals themselves, the colours on the pages and the scenery/backgrounds that surround the animals. It teaches them basic facts whilst remaining entertaining. Each board book is durable and perfect for young children handling them and they fit in perfectly with the rest of the range. They are a fabulous introduction to fact based books."--Mama Mummy Mum "http: // "

"The Mibo(R) series, written and illustrated by Madeleine Rogers, is exquisite! The bright colors, fun geometric prints, and educational rhyming are sure to be a hit. While the board format makes them sturdy and accessible to little hands, the vocabulary and fun animal facts will delight older children as well. The Jungle Crew takes us through the rainforest highlighting birds, chimpanzees, tigers, and frogs. The Polar Pack introduces penguins, walrus, polar bears, reindeer, and owls. The Safari Set focuses on lions, giraffes, elephants, zebras, and hippos. The books are individually gorgeous but together they make a great gift."--Story Monsters Ink "Story Monsters Ink, November 2017 issue "
