Douglas Wood, bestselling author of Old Turtle, takes readers on a trip around the world to show how each living person is making an impact.

Emphasizing the beauty of nature and the constant motion on Earth, Making the World shares the intimate secret of how our unfinished world is continuously being built by each person who lives in it.

With examples such as how the waves continuously crash into the shore and turn pebbles into sand, this book will help teach your young reader about the beauty of our ever-shifting environment.
