The Nature Girls by Aki is a tale told in rhyme about a group of adventurous girls always ready to explore. They manage to visit every biome on earth in the course of the book, enjoying aquatic, desert, grassland, tundra and forest trips. The troop encounters the relevant flora and fauna as they cheerfully pilot themselves around the world via sleds, planes, scuba gear and camel. Their broad smiles reflect their enthusiasm. This is a diverting and slyly educational read.
