'Helped me to have a closer bond with my little lad' New Dad comment 'A most wonderful introduction to the intricate designs hidden in science and nature' Olga Bogatyreva, Doctor of Science and Dr Nikolaj Bogatyrev, Biologist '... gives fresh stimulation for young brains ... provides cognitive encouragement which can increase the desire to learn, to question, and to find logic in the world.' Dr. Raymond H. Hamden, Clinical Psychologist The Foundation For International Human Relations, Washington, DC. '...they [Iya and Graham] have joined forces and created an amazing world, accessible to all, where science and art merge for human contemplation. Maria Montessori talked of 'seeking order' as a human tendency and the pages of this book provide incredible images where order and beauty can be sought to satisfy this human sensibility as well as being a unique resource to seek knowledge of our universe in the micro and macro.' Anne Shiner, KleinKinder Montessori Education 'This beautiful book is a unique blend of mesmerising images for young eyes and fascinating facts to enlighten any parent' Chrissie Weltike, Early years Educator 'The EARTH DESIGNS are a wonderful invention in the world where children are exposed to a vast sea of information, sometime dissonant and chaotic. They [EARTH DESIGNS images] help a young developing mind to tune into the natural harmonics of symmetry, rhythmical patterns and the logic behind the laws of creation. Such visual stimuli will nurture the imagination and appreciation of harmony.' Maria Davinshvar Brown, Painter and Art Lecturer 'I highly recommended this book. You'll love looking at it as much as your baby does and that is so important when encouraging a child's development. There's a lot of validity in the power of black and white images to young babies and this is a really nice way to share the experience with them.' Laura, Parent in Somerset, UK 'If you want to introduce your baby to the wonders of nature, this is perfect for you... Or if you believe that there are no limits to your baby's understanding and you want to maximise learning potential. There are no other well researched and creative images that I have come across. This is the best. Great start for the baby'. Adrian, Parent in Somerset, UK
