“Once, the only sounds to be heard were the buzzing of bees in the grass, the murmuring of moles in the earth, and the song of birds in the sky. These warmed the hearts of those who cared to listen - until the others came to fill the sky with a cacophony of noise.”
Varmints is a stunning picture book which explores the destruction of nature through lyrical prose and dramatic illustrations. The illustrations will promote quality discussion as they are open to personal interpretation. Parallels can be drawn between what is happening in the story and the modern world. Themes such as lost opportunities for silence and man’s lack of consideration for the natural world offer rich opportunities for discussion in guided reading.
