Who does this footprint belong to?
What is this worm doing here?
Is this a toad or a frog?
What do you call this tree?

Even if we live in a big city, there is always nature outside: clouds and stars, trees and flowers, rocks and beaches, birds, reptiles or mammals.

What are we waiting for?
Let’s jump off the couch and begin exploring!

Created in collaboration with a team of Portuguese experts, this book aims to arouse curiosity about fauna, flora and other aspects of the natural world. It also includes suggestions for activities and many illustrations to help the whole family get started, leave the house, and go out to discover – or simply admire – the amazing world that exists Outside.

What they say

An incredible nature encyclopaedia that shows the younger a world that has been ever more hidden from their eyes, and which will trigger them to jump fences into greener lands.

Pedro Miguel Silva, blog Deus me livro, 15/10/2018

One of the best books that I’ve held in my hands lately.

Ana Kotowicz, i newspaper, Liv supplement, 1/06/2014

What’s that word for when you pick a book that’s aimed for children and in each page you learn something that you didn’t know before? It’s called a miracle: a scientific book that stimulates those who read it and see it, turning pleasure into learning.

Miguel Esteves Cardoso, in Público, 03/01/2015
