We borrowed this book for Classical Conversations Cycle 1.

We got the book to see diverse global locations and people, and wow, what an amazing book! The photos are unique and really amazing. The kids loved the book, and as a photographer myself I really enjoyed reading about how Arthus-Bertrand made the shots. The kids wanted to view specific photos again and again, and we went through the book at least a dozen times in the 2 weeks we borrowed the book.

Excellent book, highly recommended for kid

Gorgeous photographs of this great planet with specific teachings related to various regions and the work they are known for. From cotton in Africa, dye in Morocco, schoolyards in California, Elephants in Botswana and Penguins in Antarctica, see the world from a higher perspective as you've never seen it before. Absolutely breath taking.

Spectacular images along with informative, thought-provoking text make this an ideal book for interesting kids in geography and the world's amazing diversity. My only wish is that it had been a lot longer - the 35 or so images is only a fraction of the full volume.

This book is full of beautiful, interesting photos that my kids and I enjoyed looking at. It's one of those books that makes us learn something without even being aware of the learning going on. The text was also interesting for children and adults.
