A group of young girls explore the world together. They journey to five different biomes and have a variety of adventures. After the narrative there is a spread explaining the elements of the different biomes.
The illustrations in this book are fun and lighthearted. I love that the language frames the girls as “nature girls” and sets up readers to feel a sense of belonging in nature.
