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.

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.
