“The big world we live in is smaller than you think.”
In her newest book, Rachel Ignotofsky takes readers on a sweeping tour of the earth that spans its five continents, its ecosystems and their inhabitants. Readers learn about different cycles of nature, the importance of biodiversity, how humans have impacted the planet and measures we can take to protect it. Included in the book’s back matter are a glossary, sources and an index.
Ever since she published Women in Science, we have been in awe of how Rachel Ignotofsky uses art to educate and in so doing, expands readers’ views of history, science, the world, its diverse people and walks of life.
The Wondrous Workings of Planet Earth: Understanding Our World and Its Ecosystems was written and illustrated by Rachel Ignotofsky and published by Ten Speed Press. It’ll be out soon on September 18.
