A lot can happen in 4.6 billion years, and this compact little information book aims to bring readers up to date on the key things that have occurred since the Earth was formed by taking a close and detailed look at nature. Indeed, it opens with a quote from Albert Einstein: ‘Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better’. A variety of topics are covered and the mix of friendly, engaging text and bright, appealing illustrations convey a great deal of facts and outline the thinking behind them. There are also regular suggestions for experiments readers can do – clearly explained – to back up the theory. This will appeal to any young person eager to learn more about the natural world. ~ Andrea Reece
Did you know that fish can use tools, and that wombat poo is cubic? This animal-tastic, fact-packed guide to the world of nature contains everything the budding naturalist needs to know. Meet nature's most fearsome predators, explore the wonders of the ocean, and marvel at the ability of animals to survive in the harshest environments.
If you want to get out into the wild yourself, there's cool practical advice for tracking animals through the woods, using binoculars to spot our feathered friends and making a bird feeder in your back yard. Learn about why we should all care about endangered species, who would win in a fight between a shark and a honey badger, and how to make flowers bloom in the most unlikely places.
