About the Book: Another non-fiction triumph from Nicola Davies and Emily Sutton, following the success of Tiny: The Invisible World of Microbes. Lots: The Diversity of Life on Earth captures the interest and intrigue of children from the very first page, whisking them away on a journey through different habitats across the surface of the Earth. The narrative style of the book enables children to explore alongside the little girl, who encourages them to look at the world around them more closely and critically. It is a perfectly pitched introduction to biodiversity, igniting curiosity in a way that will then help to develop compassion and a commitment to making a difference.
Reasons for Selection: Lots: The Diversity of Life on Earth brilliantly tackles the challenging concept of biodiversity in a way that can be easily understood by a child in KS1. A narrative text is presented in large font, while the information register is presented in italic font, providing an opportunity for children to develop skills in reading different kinds of text.The illustrations provide scope for creative work.
