Grade 4 Up-The 34 stunning aerial views from all over the world were snapped by photographer Arthus-Bertrand while leaning out of a helicopter. The images appeared in his earlier book for adults, Earth from Above: 365 Days (Abrams, 2001), but here they are larger and even more gorgeous. Twenty-two of them feature African scenes, and the remaining 12 cover the other continents. The pictures range from natural beauty without any sign of humanity (a mangrove forest in New Caledonia) to completely manmade environments (dye vats in Morocco) to a mixture of both (dates drying in a palm grove in Egypt). Burleigh's interesting and informative text expands on each photo, explaining natural phenomena, human impact, and wildlife and human adaptations. To geographically orient readers, a small globe locates each country of origin with a red dot. While this may be too general a survey for use in reports, children will likely be captivated by its browsing potential.
