Our Time on Earth: From the Mayfly to the Immortal Jellyfish is a beautiful 64 page hardback.
This breath-taking title provides a unique and beautiful insight into one of the most taboo subjects in biology – animal lifespans.
Beginning with the very shortest (the mayfly, which lives for just a few hours), and ending with the death-defying immortal jellyfish, the book is far from bleak – it is in fact a celebration of life, and gives an absolutely fascinating account of these creatures’ habitats, features and habits.
Highlighting the sanctity of life, and how much we have to learn from each and every animal, the author uses lyrical and descriptive text against a backdrop of gentle artwork to create a deeply moving book that should be a staple in every classroom.
