- Supporting educational boxes on each page explain key points about nature, helping kids to discover more about the world around them.

Children can marvel at a variety of different timeframes in nature, like geological timelines spanning thousands of years; a year in the life of a habitat, a day in the life of an animal, and complete plant life cycles. 

Ever wondered what the mayfly does with its short life? In this book, you’ll find out how it lives as a nymph for two weeks, before flying out of the water for just a day in the sky as a mayfly. If you’ve ever thought about how a chimpanzee spends its day, how the rainforest changes over 24 hours, or how long a kangaroo’s pregnancy lasts, then this is the book for you!
