Discovering the diversity of a hidden microcosm
THE FASCINATION OF THE EVERYDAY
Children are irresistibly drawn to puddles: it rains, a small amount of water accumulates on the path, and two minutes later, they are splashing happily about in it. But a puddle is so much more! This book describes the diversity of a hidden microcosm. It explains what makes one puddle different from another, why the number of puddles is decreasing, the lifecycle of a puddle and the living organisms it contains. Who would have thought a puddle could be home to such exciting creatures as hairybacks and water bears?
In this attractively designed, large-format book, an award-winning biologist takes a look at an exciting microcosm through a magnifying glass
The first illustrated non-fiction book for children on puddles, ponds, pools and their inhabitants
Unique naturalistic illustrations invite young (and old) students of nature to discover and be amazed by a hidden world
