The Most Important Animal of All The Earthwatch Institute declared the bee as the most important species, but what other keystone species are important to their ecosystems and the planet? In this beautiful book, seven children champion an animal for the top spot: • beaver – ecosystem engineer, creator of wetlands • elephant – ecosystem engineer and seed disperser • bee – master pollinator • bat – night-time predator and pollinator • tiger – top predator and seed disperser • shark – top predator, keeping our oceans healthy • krill – a food source for so many

THE MOST IMPORTANT ANIMAL OF ALL Hardback and paperback 275 x 235mm 10¾ x 9¼” 40pp plus ends 5 to 9 years UK Price £12.99 hbk/£6.99 pbk

CO-EDITION PRINT RUN Files due: 1 May 2021 FOB HK: 30 June 2021

A positive and enriching introduction to ecosystems, checked and endorsed by a panel of ecologists, educators and animal experts. Illustrated by award-winning UK illustrator Hannah Bailey.

“Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help.” Dr. Jane Goodall


BOOKS FOR 5 TO 9s The story is told in an accessible way, through children’s show-and-tell presentations to their class.

For each animal, the layout moves from detailed illustrations to the photographic accuracy of real-life photos.

THE BEE

“When a bee visits a flower, it drinks up the nectar, a sweet juice the flower produces. It also collects a yellow dust called pollen as food for baby bees.

“Bees are little animals that make a BIG difference. They help flowers grow, and help produce a lot of the foods we eat. “Not all the bees we see buzzing around are honey bees that live in huge colonies with a queen. Big hairy bumblebees live in small colonies. Solitary bees, like the mason bee, live alone. But they all go from flower to flower searching for food.”

Stigma Honey bee Bumblebee Pollen on the stamen

Ovary makes ovules

“What a delight!”

Petal

Bryony Turford, Chartered science teacher

Orchard mason bee

“When a bee flies to another flower, some pollen sticks to the stigma on the new flower. This is called pollination. Plants need this to happen so they can grow fruits and seeds.” 10

Save the Elephants, www.savetheelephants.org

There are over 1,400 bat species living all around the world, but 200 species in more than 60 countries are endangered, mostly because their habitats are disappearing. LEARN MORE AT Bat Conservation Trust, www.bats.org.uk Bat Conservation International, www.batcon.org
