These men and women are beyond us, they have shown it is possible to unite brains with love. What makes their lives and adventures so special is that they are so normal, just like you and me. Some have been able to overcome the greatest obstacles to better the most unthinkable challenges, and others have had to try and try again to obtain revolutionary achievements, but all have had an incredible drive. Martin Luther King, Frida Kahlo, Stephen Hawkins, Bebe Vio... a long list of people who, from the beginning of the 20th century until today, encourage us to think of what we could all be capable of. This book will give you some interesting facts and unknown information on these contemporary heroes, as exceptional as they are normal.
Scientists have discovered more than a million different species of insects that every day, in every part of the world, live their very diverse lives. Many fly, others walk or bore through wood. Some are pleasing to the eye, like butterflies; others, like cockroaches, a bit less. For the most part, insects are small - sometimes so small that you need a magnifying lens to see them - and that is the way we are used to thinking of them. But in this book, the insects are presented in their actual sizes and in many cases readers will be genuinely surprised to find some veritable giants among them. The book includes other impressive insect characteristics - how much they weigh, how fast they are, how large and small insects differ from each other - all of which can be seen in the life-size illustrations that make the insects seem as though they have just landed on the page.
There are few subjects that fascinate children as much as animals: they never tire of reading about their characteristics, but they rarely get the opportunity to see their favourite creatures in person. This book gives readers the possibility to explore the animal world as though its inhabitants were right in front of them, exactly as they are in reality, with their real dimensions. It will thus be possible, for instance, to compare fangs and tails and discover that it's not the lion that has the longest claws, but the sloth! Young readers will be able to compare a cat's nose with that of its wilder and more dangerous cousin, the tiger. With these immediate comparisons children will finally be able get to know animals the ways they are in real life!
