Synopses & Reviews
The strong narrative approach of this series provides a tangible, first-hand feeling for life in four of Earth's amazing habitats, proving there's no place like home--or habitat--to learn about the highly adaptable nature of life on our planet, as well as current threats to it. Readers discover diverse plant and animal forms, including their relationships to one another and the environment, driving home the key curriculum concept of interdependency. Maps, cross-sections, and edifying photographs complete the picture, while inventive side-panel graphics reinforce key information, such as habitat location (e.g., ground level or upper canopy).
'River Explorer' will give you the answers to these and many other questions: How does a river begin? Do river plants and animals depend on each other to survive? How does pollution affect a river?
