The cover and every single page of this book is super cool with spectacular photographs of all things in the natural world. You feel like you can reach out and touch a chameleon’s skin or a leopard’s fur. When not being blown away by the photos, you will learn about how hummingbird hover and frogs communicate and thousands of other fascinating nature facts. Great family gift!

A remarkable visual reference for kids that explores the natural world in stunning detail and allows young readers to see nature as they never have before, through amazing close-ups and cross-sections, exploded images, X-rays, and more.

From fish to forests, from mammals to mountains, from seeds to salamanders, this extraordinary new encyclopedia is the perfect tool for curious minds to find out how things work and why they exist, and will keep young readers absorbed with its amazing close-up images that depict and explain the wonders of plants, animals, and the living world around us. Its die-cut cover makes it even more appealing and awe-inspiring, with an iguana appearing to emerge from the book itself.
