Youngsters get a bird's eye world-view in Earth from Above for Young Readers, concept and photographs by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, text by Robert Burleigh, illus. by David Giraudon, and adapted from their adult title, Earth from Above: 365 Days. Stunning full-color photos reveal cotton crops on the Cote d'Ivoire that look like giant cauliflower from the air, and New York's Yankee Stadium, where a lone outfielder dots the center of a seemingly striped expanse of green.
