Honestly such a beautiful book, the illustrations are incredible, and also just a great book for learning a little about the different eco systems of the world
The illustrations were beautiful. Loved reading about the various ecosystems in all the 7 continents on Earth with my son. I wish there was more information and more illustrations of animals and plants in the various ecosystems. It even had carbon, water, nitrogen and phosphorus cycles which was ama Leggi tutto
I listened to this on audio. I don’t think that was the optimal way to enjoy this book. I liked it, it just wasn’t a lot of new info or particularly inspiring.
Love the concept and content list of this book, as well as the layout and design. Particularly love the eco focus. I’m disappointed, though, in the inaccuracies or arguable inaccuracies. As an Australian who has spent decades researching our land and history, I was stunned at the considerable mistak Leggi tutto

The science is sound, but also pretty dense and text-heavy. This contrasts with the art, which is loose and colorful...and difficult to follow Leggi tutto
Three stars may seem a little harsh, but remember that three stars means I like it. And there is a lot to like here: * a very consistent design scheme that communicates quite well * a well-developed illustrative style that is clear and consistent, but also rich with personality * a great introductory s Leggi tutto
This is an absolutely beautiful book with very well organized information. I loved all the illustrations, and really liked how each ecosystem page was set up, with general information, fun facts, biggest benefits, and biggest threats. The threats were addressed particularly well, emphasizing climate Leggi tutto
