The Big Book of Belonging

Author: Yuval Zommer Format: Hardback Release Date: 23/09/2021

The Big Book of Belonging is for all the children who like to climb trees, run barefoot, splash in paddles, search for bugs, sing with the birds, taste snowflakes and count the stars. By placing children at the heart of the natural world, the book celebrates our connection with planet Earth and reveals the often surprising similarities between humans, animals and plants. Illustrated in Yuval Zommer's inimitable style and packed with quirky natural history facts, readers will discover that sea otters hold hands just like humans do; hermit crabs have homes; and that butterflies also have bedtimes. They'll learn that just as humans have unique fingerprints, zebras have different stripes, cowrie shells have distinct spots and that no two snowflakes are identical. The book's uplifting message will inspire environmentalists young and old alike - we all belong to nature, and nature belongs to us all.
