David Attenborough kindly agreed to read this for us:

"The natural world is important and valuable and beautiful and wonderful and an amazement and a pleasure. I've been so lucky to have seen the animals I've seen. But alas! Scientists estimate that there are more than eight million unique animal species on Earth - isn't it incredible and awe-inspiring to contemplate how much life is yet to be discovered? We live on a small, beautiful planet teeming with life, and through the study of these magnificent creatures, our desire to protect our biodiversity grows stronger.

"Michelle and Zack will lead you on an adventure as you explore the wonders of our natural world, from the smallest microbes in the earth to the majestic blue whales in our oceans. You will learn what exactly makes a living thing "living", and you will study the plethora of brilliant adaptations animals and plants have inherited and perfected over millenia to survive and thrive in their unique environments on our beautiful planet."
