-Esquemas y explicaciones sobre lo que sucede es el transcurso de un año en diferentes hábitats, en el ciclo vital de una planta o en el día a día de un animal.

Discover the history of Earth’s most spectacular features – from the Grand Canyon to the Sahara desert. See how life evolved, from the first single-celled organisms to the extraordinary variety of creatures living today. Then we look at life on Earth today. Every species on Earth has its own unique story – Timelines of Nature reveals these weird and wonderful life cycles through fascinating visual timelines. It tells you what’s really happening on Earth each minute of every day.

- Each timeline is unique and depicts a different topic, such as the story of how whales evolved, how the Moon was formed, or how a tiger spends its day.
- Feature pages highlight climactic moments in nature, for example, the butterfly finally emerging from its chrysalis.
- 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.
We believe in the power of discovery. That's why we create books for everyone that explore ideas and nurture curiosity about the world we live in.
 
From first words to the Big Bang, from the wonders of nature to city adventures, you will find expert knowledge, hours of fun and endless inspiration in the pages of our books.
