Choose your own learning adventure with Curiositree, a new series of visually compelling information charts. Discover the myriad reasons why humans have become the most successful species on the planet in this fascinating complete visual history of mankind. Travel from our earliest beginnings to the modern day, and discover how our evolution is interconnected by following the arrows that link to charts on related topics throughout the book. Exploring the development of farming, the origins of writing, religion, trade, weapons and armour, the first cities, and the growth of technology in the modern age, this visual compendium of wonders from the mind of man is full of fascinating information for curious young readers.
The creators of non-fiction continue to set the standard for sumptuous, beautiful books and this must surely be one of the most handsome to be published all year. Via 67 colourful wall charts it examines the different ways in which animals and plants have adapted to survive, explaining why they look and behave as they do. The charts are colour coded – yellow for habitats; orange for species; blue for special adaptations – and while the book can be read chronologically readers are encouraged to follow arrows in the margins to different pages, which expand on what they’ve learned with different examples and complementary information. It’s a book children will pore over happily for hours and which encourages them to develop as curious, questioning readers and thinkers. ~ Andrea Reece
