World Came to my Place Today
by Jo Readman and Ley Honor Roberts.
The world really
does come to visit George when his Grandpa arrives,
with a globe, to look after him and his sister
for the day. Grandpa explains how everything
from the cereal they eat for breakfast and the
chocolate bars they love, to the rubber in their
bicycle tyres and wood in their toys, come from
plants all over the world.
The lively, simple text follows George’s
day as he discovers the wonder of plants and
how they affect his daily life. With eye-catching,
quirky illustrations coupled with photographs
of the original grasses, fruits and plants on
the right hand side, this highly original and
entertaining book follows the ethos of the Eden
Project by increasing awareness in children of
the natural world around them.
