Synopsis

Nature Got There First by Phil Gates

Birds conquered the air long before the Wright Brothers, the burrs on plants are amazingly similar to velcro fastenings, rattlesnakes have an alarm system, bats and dolphins have their own form of sonar...Nature is full of amazing designs and mechanisms that appear to have inspired the engineering and technology we use today. This book shows you how and why.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
