The Natural History Book

This encyclopaedia is visually stimulating and scientifically robust.


It contains snippets of natural history from around the globe, and will make a great addition to any family bookshelf.


Aspects of natural history are separated into six easily-comprehensible categories, covering minerals, rocks, microscopic life, animals, fungi and plants.


The encyclopedia contains over 5000 species, and biological and geological groupings are explained in an easily understandable way. There is something for all children in this monumental, five-years-in-the-making, book.
