This is a praktbok!

Line Renslebråtens illustrations are gasp-fremkallende realistic at the same time that they bear in themselves a magic that the world’s largest animals are surrounded by. Already on the first page, add the chapter and avsnittitler out as part of a large wave. The paper is thick. The cover is good to keep in. Physically, it is a book to be delighted in.

In addition, this exciting fabric. We follow a blåhvalunge from the born, seven metres long somewhere in the south of the globe – until it is adult and can manage herself. Then, set the course to the south after the stay in more northerly waters.

In the course of the book we get the answer on how whales evolved from urtidens land animals. We learn what they eat, how they breathe and move. Here is a chapter about when the whales almost became extinct due to intensive hunting.

Also today, human activities that forsøpler the oceans a risk for the blue whale. This could have been even more strongly emphasized, taking into consideration the critical challenges for nature’s diversity that we face.

On the other hand, we must not underestimate young readers. Children are often well as environmentally-conscious as adults and can even draw conclusions.

at the Back of the book there is a faktadel with questions, answers, and cool records. Where do we get answers about the blue whale is endangered today.

Author Andreas Tjernshaugen write clearly and knowledgeable. He scores highly on objectivity and facts.

Suitable for children 8 to 14 years.

This is also a book about the mountain and what moves where by insects, birds and predators, even though the lemenet is the “main character”.

All have probably heard of the term “lemenår” or that a lemmings can be so angry that it cracks.

In this book, we follow a lemenbestand in the mountains for several years. It is a good idea. Author Nina Eide and illustrator Inger Lise Belsvik will show the variations that occur in the large interaction in nature. This is natural fluctuation, and a part of the eternal cycle.

Grand landskapsillustrasjoner let the seasons rise up through the fiery autumn colors through the white winter to the blooming sommerspirer. This is also a book about the mountain and what moves where by insects, birds and predators, even though the lemenet is the “main character”.

the Second part of the book is a faktadel. It contains specific knowledge about the lemenet especially, but also offers a large block, about climate change in general. In addition, we afford what we as readers can do to help to prevent the global warming of the earth.

Lemmings-book has in contrary to the book about the blue whale, an explicit political or moral agenda. I like that the authors emphasize that the fluctuations in nature are completely normal at the same time as they make it clear that we humans can distort the fragile balance with our actions.

the Publisher says that the book is suitable for children from 4 to 10 years. The teksttunge faktadelen do, in my opinion, the book most relevant for the upper layer.

This is the most original of our three selected books. It is also the book with by far the least text.

Here portrayed sloth, which lives in South and central America, and which live in symbiosis with a butterfly. The story is funny, but true: Dovendyrets coat is covered by a type of algae that makes it look green. And in the fur live the small butterflies. They bring nutrients to the algae, sloth need.

As in the story of the Lemenet – the mountain’s heart, is a meticulous and natural interaction in nature is important. As it stands:

This strange, shaggy creature that hangs there so peaceful in the jungle, is, in itself, a whole small world.

Author Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson is a professor in the application of conservation biology and has written award-winning books about insects. Here, she collaborates with illustrator Brian Sletvold Torkildsen, who brings both poetry and humor into their glowing illustrations from a wet and colourful jungle.

Also this book concludes with a faktadel. It is brief, and contains in a greater degree than the other books of humor and curiosa.

You might think that a professor in the application of conservation biology would motivate the child’s care in his behavior in nature. But no, this book is simply a fascinating tale of the strange sloth and its dependence on a small butterfly. Sometimes it is more than enough to tell a fascinating story about all the funny that exists on the planet. Even if the world calls on the literature about the preservation of the diversity we also are a part of.

Suitable as høytlesningsbok from 4-5 years, and as a separate reading for children who already have learned to read themselves.
