About the book:

Many kids today are more interested in computers and robots than frogs or ferns, and personally, I think this bodes ill for an appreciation of nature. If you yourself are too busy to take your kids out to the fields or forests for a real natural experience, this is a great book to help convince them that there is, if nothing else, a utilitarian value to preserving nature. Most every technological solution humans have painstakingly contrived already existed in nature in some fashion. And if we want to build better computers and robots, we should conserve ecosystems filled with the billions of years of successfully evolved engineering solutions to emulate. This is a slightly uncomfortable argument, akin to saving rainforests for possible pharmacological value, but it works with some people!
