Leaf Litter: Exploring the Mysteries of a Hidden World
Angus & Robertson, 2006 - Forest animals - 38 pages
In a time when respect for and understanding of our environment are paramount, Leaf Litter is an excellent introduction to the intricate and complex relationships that exist in our natural world. Leaves, twigs, branches and bark collect on the ground in forests all over the world. We call it leaf litter, but it isn′t really rubbish at all. If you look closely at leaf litter you will discover a world of animals and plants living side by side, a busy secret world we hardly ever see. In this exquisitely illustrated book, award-winning author/illustrator Rachel Tonkin explores a small patch of leaf litter beneath one tree, which contains a hidden world that changes day by day. The more you look, the more amazing things you will find. Leaf Litter gives children a new way to see the world, and to realise that each part affects all the others, and that every living thing is continually changing. This is a glorious book. Impeccably researched, extraordinarily beautiful, and perfect in every way. Jackie French - author, gardening expert and environmentalist
