For the 2021 edition of Partir en livre, the University of Montpellier's scientific culture service is inviting children aged 6 and over to take on the role of naturalist explorers.

Throughout these two unique days, the Jardin des Plantes becomes an exploratory playground, offering the chance to discover plants and insects from around the world and the Mediterranean.

Through a variety of activities combining literature and science, young visitors can discover the secrets of these species with their unsuspected superpowers. They'll be invited to discover the biodiversity hidden in a selection of books (novels, comics, Mangas...), and have the opportunity to meet author Claire Lecoeuvre and illustrator Gilles Macagno, at events and book signings.
