Lots by Nicola Davies and Emily Sutton
A new non-fiction picture book introducing young readers to the wonderful world of ecology and conservation is exciting enough, but when it’s authored by Nicola Davies and illustrated by Emily Sutton – it’s sensational!
Together they introduce us to the amazing diversity of life on our earth in all its forms, from giant whales to the tiniest micro-organisms, presented through rich and colourful illustrations that deliver the promise of the title: there’s lots here to see and discover.
Lots is informative and entertaining – this is my kind of book, the kind that can awaken every child’s inner scientist and conservationist; not surprising since the author is a zoologist, BBC science writer and award-winning author of many outstanding books for children, including some of my favourites: Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes and A First Book of Nature. Highly recommended for ages 4 and up.
