Wherever you are in the world there are natural treasures to be found. Our planet is filled with curious objects made by plants, animals and even by the Earth itself. All you need to do is look carefully and you can find treasures in the most unexpected places – even in towns and cities.
Ben Hoare is passionate about nature and in Nature’s Treasures he has collected 100 intriguing items and reveals the fascinating stories behind them. Find out how bristly mouths help huge whales capture tiny animals, how minute scales make butterflies shine in the sunlight, and how studying a leaf skeleton can tell us how it transports food. The perfect book to inspire young nature lovers everywhere.
