Wonder: The Natural History Museum Poetry Book by Ana Sampson is a beautiful collection of poetry with poems inspired by The Natural History Museum.

Covering everything from the depths of space to the centre of the earth, this beautiful collection includes poems about the solar system, planet earth, oceans and rivers, birds, dinosaurs, fossils, wildlife, flowers, fungi, insects, explorers and palaeontologists. Each section includes an introduction to the topic with insights into particularly interesting species.

The museum has a collection of over eighty million objects and, behind the scenes of its twenty-eight galleries, it holds kilometres of preserved specimens, libraries of rare books and artworks, wonders gathered on some of the most famous voyages in history, rooms packed with pressed plants, warehouses teeming with stuffed animals and freezers full of DNA. As well as a museum, it is a state-of-the-art centre for discovery with over three hundred resident scientists and over ten thousand visiting researchers each year, investigating everything from dinosaurs to life on other planets.

This collection is made up of brand new and classic poems, illustrated with botanical drawings and engravings from the museum's collections.

This fantastic collection speaks of the wonder of nature and shows us why we need to look after our incredible planet.
