Summary
"How amazing is the home we all share, planet Earth! It's home to millions and billions of animals and plants, but have you ever wondered how everything is connected? In Precious Planet, learn all about our home that was formed almost 4.6 billion years ago-- the earth's crust, the continents we live on, and the oceans in between--and dive into the planet's fascinating geography. One of the most important parts of living in a home that you love is taking care of it. Precious Planet shows how we can work together to take care of this magnificent place--from saving water and trees, to looking out for each other. Precious Planet uses eye-popping illustrations to explain the world's natural phenomena, while opening children's eyes to the importance of sustainability and conservation in a fun and engaging way."--Provided by publisher
