A beautifully illustrated hardback book telling the biographical story of Alexander von Humboldt, the botanist and adventurer.
Part of the Little People, Big Dreams series written by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara, this kid friendly biography is perfectly pitched for 4-8 year olds.
As a kid, Alexander wasn’t a great student. He had a naturally curious mind, but he saw the world differently to his teachers and fellow pupils, and just couldn’t quite fit in. But when he began collecting plants as an adult, Alexander realised he’d found his passion.
From then on, he become a great explorer, travelling the world to document all kinds of plants and species. This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the scientist.
