Where do your burgers come from? Who invented chocolate? What are rubber ducks made from? This great non-fictional book deals with the things you use every day. Yoghurt pots, chocolate or trainers are made from different materials. In this wonderful book you will get to know where these materials come from. You will learn about the inventors of paper, plastic or chocolate and what effects will arise for our world due to the cultivation, production, utilization and non-utilization of the corresponding materials.
Great pop-ups, booklets and flaps make this exciting book a true goldmine of knowledge you should not miss. Today scientists study lots of the special abilities of our fauna. Some of them are later used to be transferred into everyday life. Besides, each of you can contribute to go as easy as possible on the ressources of our planet.
This book is suitable for readers aged 7 and 12.
