To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Imagine a book which provides categorically organized information on all habitats , that is beautifully illustrated, terms immaculately explained so that it becomes easily absorbable by tiny tots, THIS IS SUCH A MUST HAVE BOOK. It provides all bite size to chomp size info in a very systematic manner with a special illustration for each habitat showing its various inhabitants and trophic levels ( my kid taught me what it is from the book). It is one of the best books I have seen on the subject with an important message for Wildlife Conservation .
I love Rachel's work and have for a while and this latest book is no exception. The Wonderous Workings of Planet Earth is beautifully illustrated and incredibly informative. This is an excellent read for teens, young adults, and adults! Most importantly it is an amazing tool for younger generations to gain a basic understanding of the fact that serious changes need to happen now if we, as humans, are going to continue to enjoy the beauty of the nature around us and the resources provided by the planet without continuing the destruction caused in large part by older, uninformed generations. This topic is approached in the book through an ecological standpoint but also an economic perspective, stating that carelessness toward nature is not the only problem, but that turning a blind eye to poverty also contributes to the large scale problems we are all facing. There are so many important issues threatening humanity and society, but if the planet is destroyed, none of that will really matter. This book is a powerful piece in the fight for all living things.
This book is a treasure. Its rich contents and artwork make for an engaging and informative read. Purchased for my 6 yo, however, I regularly find myself sifting through its pages. The content is very well organized and walks the reader through different ecosystems and natural cycle systems (water, nitrogen etc.).
