World of Wonders
Lyrical, charming, and unique; this collection of vignettes talk about the author's life through the lens of her favorite animals and plants. From dancing tree frogs to cacti - all vignettes contain fascinating information about a particular natural wonder and somehow tie into the author's life - whether it be a flashback to childhood, an observation, or an emotion. Accompanying many of the stories are gorgeous illustrations which help readers visualize the often exotic and unique natural wonders in question. Many of the vignettes bring up sexism, racism, motherhood, and other tough topics; but does so in a approachable, unique way that invites discussion. A wonderful book to read and discuss with others.
