If you live near any natural countryside you’ll know there is a raw beauty to it that demands respect. For us Coombe Mill is set in an ancient wooded valley, itself an amazing habitat and micro climate, yet a couple of miles out of the valley and you find yourself on Bodmin Moor, another, quite different yet equally breathtaking part of our wild world. Woodland and moorland are two of the thirteen wildernesses of our world covered by the stunning new Book from Quarto called Wild World. No wonder Coombe Mill is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Conserving these important wilderness areas is a gentle topic covered in the book as each one is explored in informative poetry embedded in beautiful illustrations. To find out about the other 11 wild world areas and be in with a chance of winning this lovely poetry book read on.
What we love about Wild World
The gorgeous lyrical poetry is easy reading and a delight to absorb while the illustrations which surround each poem transport the reader into the habituate with the wildlife and nature found there. There is a handy reference page at the end which is more fact led to support the softer message through poetry. A further page suggests how we can all make a difference to protect these wild world areas in our everyday life.
We were very taken with how the book covers the relatable woodland, moorland and rock pools found here in England as well as well known wilderness areas from around the world such as The Arctic and Savannas.
