Lots: The Diversity of Life on Earth
"Clear, direct, involving text, coupled with vivid, delicate illustrations make for a truly special work of non-fiction." - Guardian. There are living things everywhere: the more we look, the more we find. There are creatures on the tops of the tallest jungle trees, at the bottom of the coldest oceans, even under the feathers of birds and in boiling volcanic pools. So how many different kinds are there? One, two, three ... lots! From the award-winning team behind Tiny: The Invisible World of Microbes comes Lots, a beautifully illustrated introduction to the concept of biodiversity for younger readers. With words from Nicola Davies and exquisite artwork by Emily Sutton, this groundbreaking book is certain to enchant and inspire children.
This is one of those special books with cross-over appeal. Tiny children will adore the illustrations, slightly older ones will learn fascinating facts and readers of any age will be moved by the message that we need to take better care of our beautiful environment. This is a gorgeously presented book. The cover is simply beautiful and every single page is a riot of vibrant colour as the author and illustrator take us on a journey around the world. [...] The text is at a perfect level for very young children with additional information added within the illustrations for those who want to find out more. [...] This large format hardback would make a very special gift for a child. It would be especially valuable in schools and is a must buy for primary school libraries. [...] This is a treat of a book and I would highly recommend it. * thebookbag.co.uk * "Clear, direct, involving text, coupled with vivid, delicate illustrations make for a truly special work of non-fiction." * The Guardian * "With beautiful words from Nicola Davies and exquisite illustrations by Emily Sutton, this groundbreaking book is certain to enchant and inspire children." * Israel Book Review * "This is a book to pour and ponder over, from reading the story to picking out the different creatures in each picture, to reading the funny and fascinating animal names.
