The Lovereading4Kids comment

The most innovative approach to non-fiction since Horrible Histories, the What On Earth Wallbooks present information in a way guaranteed to inspire children’s curiosity and to stimulate real enthusiasm for learning. Each one contains a full-colour poster – 2 metres long – that illustrates the complete historical timeline of its subject. The Nature Timeline shows children the history of life on Earth, from the first signs of life 4 billion years ago to the start of the 21st century. By cross-sectioning time, the Wallchart gives children a comprehensive view of what is happening across the Earth as the centuries pass, in the oceans, and on the land. A separate timeline across the top illustrates the changes to Earth’s landmasses as the continents gradually form. Illustrations are accompanied by equally informative captions and there’s longer reading too in the form of spoof newspaper articles and letters to the editor. Billions of years of history at a glance! ~ Andrea Reece

These wallbooks are an amazing feat of publishing. The Nature Timeline shows the complete story of natural history in 1,000 species on a 2.4 metre-long timeline beginning with the formation of the Earth to the latest breakthroughs in evolutionary science. Perfect for younger readers but also relevant to all ages, this comprehensive, accessible and versatile wallbook is the first ever attempt to illustrate the entire history of nature and natural science on a single piece of paper.

In addition to the Wallbook, The Nature Timeline also includes a Chronicle which features more than 30 newspaper stories and a quiz.

The Nature Timeline Wallbook by Christopher Lloyd, Patrick Skipworth

Explore life on Earth with the most visually stunning timeline of evolution ever created, stretching back 4 billion years to the first signs of life in the seas. Then witness the emergence of multi-cellular life, the colonisation of the land, the reign of dinosaurs, mass extinctions, the migration of mammals and finally, the story of humanity from the first two-legged hominids to a world populated by more than 7 billion people today.

A3 in size and comprising a remarkable 2m long, fully illustrated timeline, it can either be read like a book or unfolded and stuck on a wall.

The The Nature Timeline also includes more than 30 newspaper articles, a 50-question quiz and a pocket magnifier. Perfect for 6-14 year olds but equally fascinating for adults of all ages. Created in partnership with experts at the The Natural History Museum.

Reviews

Praise for the What on Earth? Timeline series:

"Epic - this is history let out of the box" The Daily Telegraph

"A truly epic undertaking, in terms of layout, typography, design and sheer scale of ambition" - Christopher Middleton, The Daily Telegraph

“I wanted to let you know how fascinated my four boys are with the Shakespeare wall chart. They love it! They are aged 10, 7 and twins aged 6, and have had no contact with Shakespeare at all up till now - but can sit with it on their laps and pour over the pictures for ages! Then they ask questions (inevitable - the gory stuff!). Helen Hughes (parent)

“Christopher Lloyd came to our school to give a talk and it was compulsory for me to go. I really dreaded it, and thought that it would be boring. However, to my pleasant surprise the talk was one of the most interesting talks I have ever listened to. It sparked in me a real interest in history and current events, so much so that I went home and got the What On Earth Happened Wallbook and the full book. I have chosen GCSE for history and will likely go on to study it at A-level. Thanks again for what you are doing and for inspiring me.” Aidan Bartholomew (14 years old)
