World of Wonders: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks, and Other Astonishments

This 2020 book by by Aimee Nezhukumatathil and illustrated by Fumi Nakamura, was on one of my book club’s list for last year, but we didn’t get to it. Part memoir, part selective, nature exposé focussing on creatures and flora of surprising and unusual variety, part poem, part collection of mini-essays, part Cri de Coeur regarding climate change. Illustrations lovely. Short. Digestible. Memorable.

I have given away the extra copy I received. And may give away the one I meant to keep. Or not.
