my big worldMy Big World by Dr. Sophie Dauvois

“Here is a new approach for young children to the geography and science of our planet. Starting with a child at home eating lunch, the book goes on to explore the horizons of the wider world, including plants and animals, rivers and oceans, mountains and forests, weather and seasons, the sun, the moon, and the stars. Featuring imaginative and humorous images and a large, friendly format, the book offers a unique way for children to make connections with their world. The investigations are led by a little girl named Koko who poses instructive questions, and is aided by three intrepid explorers. With things to do both on and off the page, including games, recipes, and crafts, children are able to comprehend each topic through playing and learning.”                      [J032.02 DAUVOIS,S]
