Happy Earth Day! The Amicus Book of Earth by Isobel Lundie
Since I absolutely love all of Isobel Lundie's board books, I thought it only fitting to share this one with you on Earth Day. Lundie's collage illustrations use maps, newspaper and graph paper, paired with other earth-toned papers to create a truly eye-catching and creative set of illustrations. With just the right pinch of information for children in the 1-2 age range, The Amicus Book of Earth gives children a basic understanding of what jungles have, what grasslands are like, what wetlands are like, that cities come in all different sizes, that oceans cover most of the earth's surface, and that desserts can either be hot or freezing.
