Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Infographics are a succinct and often illuminating way to make one's point (as anyone who's recently spent time on Facebook knows), and Richard and Simkins use bright digital graphs, charts, pictograms, and other high-impact images to explore topics related to life on Earth in this smart kickoff to a series. Various spreads compare animals' lifespans, speed, and sizes; human deaths due to different diseases (represented by skulls and crossbones of varying sizes); the evolution of animal life on Earth; and multiple life cycles. Visual learners, trivia hounds, and budding scientists will be delighted. Simultaneously available: Planet Earth: The World in Infographics. Ages 8 — up."

Synopsis:

Be amazed by the real-life size of the world's largest spider; discover which animal can jump the equivalent of a human leaping over a skyscraper; measure the length of a blue whale in buses, people, and basketball courts; and more!

From the animal classification system and DNA to reproduction, food webs, and the world's fastest animals, this book explores the natural world using a wide variety of icons, graphics, and pictograms.

Highly visual and accessible, infographics are an increasingly popular way to introduce complex stats, facts, and figures to children, helping them to digest complex information on a number of topics.
