Overview, Young Explorer's Edition

A New Way of Seeing Earth



Discover Earth as you've never seen it before, in this stunning and unique collection of satellite images that offer an unexpected look at our planet. A perfect gift for young National Geographic fans and atlas enthusiasts!

When astronauts look down at our planet and see its vibrant surface shining against the blackness of space, they experience the Overview Effect--a sense of awe, an awareness that everything is interconnected, and an overwhelming desire to take care of our one and only home.

Overview: Young Explorer's Edition, newly adapted for young readers from the adult book Overview, captures this sense of wonder and shares it with readers without having to leave the ground. Extraordinary aerial photographs reveal Earth's natural beauty and show the surprising, fascinating, and destructive ways humans have impacted our environment. This eye-opening visual journey will forever change the way we see our home planet.

About the authors

Benjamin Grant

Overview takes its inspiration from Daily Overview – an Instagram account established by author Benjamin Grant. Since he began the project in December 2013, his daily posts have both delighted and challenged his audience from all corners of the globe. For Overview, Grant has curated and created more than 200 original images by stitching together numerous high-resolution satellite photographs. With each Overview, Grant aims to not only inspire a fresh perspective of our planet but also encourage a new understanding of what human impact looks like. He lives and rides his bike in New York City.
