You – and your entire family, as this book is suitable for all ages – can enjoyably explore the wondrous workings of our one and only planet (at least for now, and as far as we know!) in this engaging, quasi-comics overview. After an introductory series of explanatory visual essays, the book proceeds through the continents (with Antarctica being lumped together with life north of the Arctic Circle),followed by a look at aquatic ecosystems, the cycles of nature and humans' relationship with / stewardship of Planet Earth. Ignotofsky's organic synthesis of illustration, diagrams, charts and text – all hand drawn (or some technologically assisted simulacrum thereof) makes for an intimately immersive reading experience. If only all learning were like this!
