Give your child the power of knowledge through accurate image.
We all know the infectious enthusiasm of a child when they are eager to tell you facts that they know are true.
They stumble and fall over words so keen they are to get it out. Children appear to absorb facts to memory with such ease, unencumbered they are with other pressures and distractions of daily life.
Encourage that enthusiasm with valuable knowledge and facts in the form of visuals that are accurate and well illustrated. Children absorb information so quickly through pictures we sometimes underestimate the power of an image for the child. There is always a desire for fun cartoons that attract young minds, there is just as much need for accuracy and knowledge to expand that mind. So it’s important to have resources that are well illustrated.
Don’t your children deserve that?

To partner our last post on grey seal and harbour seal identification we have included William’s illustrations of seal species for research and identification purposes.
The physical differences of Grey and Common/Harbour seals are:
- a flat top to the head and a long high muzzle
- a larger spots or patches on coat
- slight dent shape on bridge of nose below forehead
- small round head
- many small and dark spots on coat
Can you spot which is which of William’s seal illustrations?
