planet earth. And all are broached in the most wonderful, accessible ways.

photos, illustrations, stories and information by the truckload will spark
curiosity and elicit interesting conversation. Covered are topics from the Big
Bang and ancient civilizations (with the requisite dinosaurs and early humans),
through to technology and recent pandemics and wars.

Colour tabs

sensibly-sized font and generous white space encourage readers to move through
the pages  with ease.
