The World Came to My Place Today by Jo Readman
The world really does come to visit George when his grandpa arrives, with globe, to look after him and his sister for the day. Grandpa explains how everything from the cereal they eat for breakfast and the choclate bars they love, to the rubber in their bicycle tyres and wood in their toys, comes from plants all over the world. This title follows George's day as he discovers the wonder of plants and how they affect his daily life. With eye-catching, quirky illustrations coupled with photographs of the original grasses, fruits and plants on the right-hand side, this book follows the ethos of the Eden Project by increasing awareness in children of the natural world around them.
