The Lovereading4Kids comment

Both beautiful and purposeful this is a beautiful collection of poems celebrating the wonderful attributes of nature and spurring children on to thinking about how best to keep all living things on the planet safe. Taken from around the world, including the powerful title poem which comes from Australia, these poems capture the essence of things we take for granted such as weather, birds, water and trees. Without preaching, it is thought-provoking about the desperate need to preserve what we have.


All the Wild Wonders Poems of Our Earth by Wendy Cooling

For this celebration of our Earth, distinguished anthologist Wendy Cooling has chosen poems to make children look, think, and ask questions: Why are trees so important? How are motorways damaging our countryside? What can we do about rubbish? What can we do to protect our Earth for the future? Strong, colourful illustrations combine to make this a gift book with a difference.
