EARTH FROM ABOVE FOR YOUNG READERS

Authors: Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Robert Burleigh

At last children can experience the breathtaking aerial photographs of Arthus-Bertrand in a charming book written just for them. These mysterious photos are eye-catching works of art-but there's more there than meets the eye! Earth From Above for Young Readers tells the dynamic story of the diversity of the world's cultures and climes.

Young readers will be enthralled by glowing pictures of nomads and camels, carpet merchants and scarlet ibis, tiny villages in Morocco and geysers in Yellowstone, plus many more unforgettable images. Burleigh's test enriches the experience by revealing the fascinating story that each photograph tells. This full-color book offers more than 40 globetrotting photos of Earth From Above to a new generation of admirers.

From Publishers Weekly
Youngsters get a bird's eye world-view in Earth from Above for Young Readers, concept and photographs by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, text by Robert Burleigh, illus. by David Giraudon, and adapted from their adult title, Earth from Above: 365 Days. Stunning full-color photos reveal cotton crops on the Cote d'Ivoire that look like giant cauliflower from the air, and New York's Yankee Stadium, where a lone outfielder dots the center of a seemingly striped expanse of green. Ages 9-12.
