Service Description

We're thrilled to welcome author , Sam Lloyd, to the lovely space that is Bright and Early Books to hear her share her wonderful and insightful book, Alight - A story of fire and nature. Fire is a natural part of the Australian bush. This is a story about that relationship - fire that breathes life back into nature. Alight shares the story of Australian native plants and animals during a planned fire. Discover how the fire helps Christmas Bells grow new flowers and Wallum Banksia to open its woody seed capsules. Follow Antechinus and a tiny Wallum Sedge Frog as they face the danger of the fire - and the challenges that come after. See how the bush recovers and flourishes after the fire, all under the watch of Old Eucalypt. With engaging text by Sam Lloyd, and stunning illustrations by Samantha Metcalfe, Alight is a gentle exploration of the importance and benefits of healthy fire in the bush. Reading level varies from child to child, but we recommend this book for ages 6 to 10. Features: Explores how planned fire is a necessary element in the fire-prone ecosystems of the Australian bush. Shows how different species of plants and animals respond to fire and can benefit from post-fire conditions. Illustrates how tiny animals can survive fire and how fire can trigger flower production, seed release and germination in plants. Demonstrates the challenges animals and plants can also face in the post-fire environment. We'll also be doing some art and craft activities inspired by the book.
