Get to know: Alexander von Humboldt

by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara

#AlexandervonHumboldt #NetGalley

This is a new entry in the popular, long running series of books about well-known folks who, like the book’s intended audience, were once children. This time the story is about Alexander Von Humboldt.

Usually I am familiar with the subjects in this series but I did not know who Von Humboldt was. I am so glad that I do now. He was an early environmentalist and is a person that kids who care about climate will enjoy getting to know. The book notes that it is because of him that we understand so much more about the interconnections of our natural world.

This title has wonderful illustrations. They enhance the text. I especially enjoyed seeing all of the animals that were named for this naturalist.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto-Frances Lincoln Children’s Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
