From the Back Cover
Art and science mingle in Julia Rothman's fascinating visual tour of the natural world. If you've ever wanted to see how mountains are formed or wondered about the life cycle of a mushroom or the different types of feathers on a bird, you'll delight in exploring Rothman's drawings, diagrams, and dissections. Her spirited exploration of earth and water, flora and fauna will open your eyes to new views of nature's wonders.

After completing Farm Anatomy, she got inspired to continue with what she was doing. So now she has expanded into the larger world of nature.
This 224-page paperback is not designed to be comprehensive like those humongous DK knowledge books. Nature Anatomy is more fun and simple. It covers the selected flora, fauna, insects, animals and geological formations such as mountains, the oceans.
I find it fascinating to read about all the interesting information, like the life cycle of a salmon, the types of edible plants you can find in a forest, parts of a bird, snowflakes, different types of flowers, trees, moths, mushrooms, the atmosphere and many more. The writing is accessible and I finished the book in one sitting and found myself occasionally going to Wikipedia to read up more about those things that fascinated me.
All the bits of information are presented alongside Julia Rothman's simple but beautifully coloured illustrations. I like the ink line styles with filled colours.
Overall, it's a fun and educational book. Recommended to all knowledge seekers.
