‘Lots: The Diversity of Life on Earth’, a brilliant book by Nicola Davies

How many living things are there on Earth? LOTS!  Our new favourite book, Lots: the Diversity of Life on Earth, elegantly illustrates how magnificent earth is, and impresses upon each reader how essential it is to respect our planet — now!

Did you know that there are 5,000 kinds of microbes in just one teaspoon of soil? Or that there are 600 types of oak trees? As Nicola Davies writes “every kind of living thing is a part of a big, beautiful, complicated pattern.” Nicola is also a Zoologist, and writes in a simple but captivating way. You will most likely learn about animals you have never even heard of before! (I did!)

Then there are the exquisite illustrations by Emily Sutton. They are vibrant, detailed, and stunning. Each page will capture your fascination and inspire both artists and scientists in your family!

Lots: The Diversity of Life on Earth (available in the US and UK ) is a wonderful book for budding biologists. And it is the perfect book to play alongside treasured collections of Schleich animals.
