Our Time On Earth
We are all fascinated by time and animals; how do they spend their time, what do they do with it? And how much time on Earth do they actually have? In this intriguing book, we are given a glimpse into the lifespans of a variety of animals. While some animals have all to brief a lifetime and are rushing for survival, others have seemingly all the time in the world, but how and why?
Starting with the Mayfly, the shortest lifespan of all, and ending with a creature that has the possibility of living forever, the Immortal Jellyfish, the author takes us on a journey across the globe and into the lives of some fascinating creatures that share our planet. Meeting such animals as the glorious Monarch Butterfly, the Giant Pacific Octopus, the illusive and flightless Kakapo, the human-like Orangutan…and many more, we gain understanding into the patterns of their lives as well as important information on how to protect and nurture them. And perhaps, how to help them come back from the brink of extinction.
The beautifully written text pulls us through page after page of remarkable, vivid illustration to bring endless fascination and delight. Perfect for classrooms or home, you’ll want to spend hours pouring through the pages, gaining insight into the lifespans of these incredible animals. It will fan the flames of investigation, curiosity and in-depth consideration of the natural world at a time when it is needed most.
