            This beautifully illustrated children's book takes a close look at the lifecycle of water, including how it supports all life forms, how humans harness its power, and why we need to conserve it. Water is essential for life. In fact, 60 percent of an adult human is made up of wate...r! We drink it, bathe in it, and thousands of creatures live in it. Yet, our planet is running desperately low on water, with less than one percent of the water on Earth available to fuel and feed the current population of 7.5 billion people. So dive into the wonderful world of water and find out how you can save this life-giving substance. From raindrops falling from the sky, to rushing rivers and vast oceans full of animals and plants, water is everywhere. Discover how it affects Earth's weather, through rainstorms, snow flurries, and cyclones, and gives life to animals, plants, and humans. Learn how it is used in growing food and in making clothing, as well as how water travels into our homes at the turn of a tap. See the process water goes through when you drink it and how important keeping hydrated is for our health. With stunning photos and illustrations that showcase the beauty and power of water in nature, the cycle of water has never been so exciting. In the face of our planet's climate crisis, saving water is more crucial than ever. Read about how we can use less water and discover how we can reduce water pollution to save life on Earth.

            Inhabiting a whole kingdom of their own, fungi can be found in every ecosystem. They carpet the forest floor, and hidden fungi decompose matter, feed plants, and affect how animals function. Their beautiful mushrooms come in all colours, shapes, and sizes. Fungal stories include ...the greening of the Earth, when fungi helped plants first grow on land, and the mass destruction of crops through fungal disease. From the villains of the upcoming bananageddon to plastic-eating eco-warriors, there are over 1.5 million fungus species, and a huge, unknown number of unnamed dark types. They affect other creatures, too, for example by helping to break down food, or controlling their minds against their will. Following on from the gorgeous Under Your Feet, and touching on similar topics of conservation and the secret processes within ecosystems, this book of fabulous fungi will intrigue and amaze young readers.

            Up in the Air celebrates nature in a different way! By encouraging children to look, listen and observe the world above and around them. From the patterns of clouds to the constellations, the cacophony of the dawn chorus to the individual chirrup of a sparrow, the butterflies tha...t flutter and the rustle of the leaves in the trees, this beautifully illustrated book encourages children to look, listen, and feel the nature all around them. It looks at the habitats above our heads - the towering forests around the world that help create the air that we breathe, the animals that live above and around us in the trees and the animals that fly through the air - birds, insects, and bats. It also develops sky-watching skills - from reading the patterns of the clouds, to looking at the night sky. The book also has a strong conservation message - the animals and plants that live above us are vital for the planet - whether they are pollinating plants or keeping our atmosphere clear.
