The Variety of Life

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

Did you know there are 400,000 species of beetle but only eight species of bear? Jam-packed with fun facts and figures, this is a glorious celebration of our world by non-fiction specialist Nicola Davies.

There is something to delight on every page and the layout is clear, so it's easy to read these fascinating facts about mammals, birds, reptiles and lots more. You can learn the scientific names, while the glossary at the back of the book is a helpful addition for the reader.

Accompanied with stunning illustrations by Lorna Scobie, the book encourages children to treasure the world’s biodiversity and handily indicates which species are threatened by extinction, to help children understand the importance of looking after our planet.
