Most of the Better Natural Things in the World – Dave Eggers & Angel Chang
This book has just one word per page but with that one word and the amazing illustrations it manages to convey the journey of a white tiger (with a yellow chair!) across some of the great geographical features of the world’s landscape. The tiger visits an Alpine lake, the tundra a glacier and the chaparral before ending up at the taiga.
There’s a glossary fo all of the locations at the back of the book . . . . which means that you can discover that taiga is “a swampy forest usually found in the northern parts of the globe, between tundras and steppes. The taiga is home to billions of trees and makes up one of the world’s largest biomes.”
Beautifully illustrated throughout.
