I love it when I walk out to my mail box and find a parcel to open, especially when it is a new book! I’m no stranger to mail from publishers working in the industry, but this is the first time I’ve been sent something as an ‘influencer’ which is quite fun, so thank you HarperCollins Australia for this publicity copy of Wise Words from David Attenborough, which publishes on November 29th, 2023, just in time for Christmas.

With his unmistakable voice and childlike wonder, Sir David Attenborough has graced our television screens since 1954.
This unauthorised collection celebrates the world’s favourite naturalist and his perspective on plants, animals, sustainability, community and beyond.
From vegetarianism to climate change, each of these quotes demonstrates the power of words and positive thinking in our everyday lives.
Aren’t these illustrations from the book so gorgeous! I think Australian illustrator Nat Carroll has done a wonderful job at capturing the natural world in colour. There are so many wonderful page spreads in this book, the art is stunning. But along side the illustrations are a great collection of quotes from the man himself, David Attenborough. Check out some of the quotes below.
QUOTES FROM THE BOOK:
- ‘What we do in the next few years will profoundly affect the next few thousand years.’
- ‘We depend upon the natural world for every mouthful of food that we eat and indeed every lungful of air that we breathe.’
- ‘Nature once determined how we survive. Now we determine how nature survives.’ – Love this one personally, so very true!
- ‘Movements and ideas can spread at astonishing speed.’
- ‘We need more than just intelligence, we need wisdom.’
If you’re looking for a cute little gift book for the nature lover in your life, perhaps Wise Words from David Attenborough is the easy Christmas gift you can stuff in their stocking.
Until next time,
