Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The spotlight is on the dangerous and endangered habitat of the African grasslands. Scene one: a patch of land the size of your living room. Close up: a lion cub playfully paws at a tortoise. Supporting cast: plants, soil, rocks, weather, and many, many animals great and small. Pull up a chair and observe this amazing travelogue, featuring one small square below the Sahara, half a world away. African Savanna is just one of the exciting, vibrantly illustrated volumes in the critically acclaimed One Small Square series of science and nature books for children ages 7 and up. Each book includes: Stunning full-color illustrations of each habitat and its creatures; Motivating experiments and activities, along with clear, diagrammed instructions and safety tips; A picture field guide of the habitat; A glossary-index and resource list. One Small Square--an eye-opening series originally published in hardcover--puts the whole world in perspective for children, one small square at a time. Each book is a thrilling, up-close encounter with mammals, insects, plants, birds, fish, amphibians, bacteria, and the ecosystems in which they live.
