This introductory book shows children where the five oceans are on a simple map and on photos of planet Earth. Children are asked to find the icy oceans at the top and bottom of Earth and the warm oceans around the middle. Amazing photos of a huge moray eel, sea turtle, shark, octopus, and whales will delight young readers.
Young readers are introduced to the concept of habitats in this colorful book. Each spread describes a different habitat and the animals that live there. Children will learn about habitats in forests, deserts, grasslands, wetlands, on mountains, and in the Arctic and Antarctic. An activity asks readers to use what they have learned to match photos of habitats with their habitat names.
What kinds of animals live at a pond? Learn about this amazing habitat.
What do animals do in the fall to get ready for winter? Nature photographs and easy-to-read text tell kids how animals adapt to changing weather in the season of fall.
For millions of years, forests have hosted complex life forms. Trees reach toward the sun as creatures of all shapes and sizes interact with their environment. Birds nestle on sturdy branches while non-flyers search for food and rest in the underbrush. This title will show young readers the importance of forests and how life thrives in these wooded areas!
Offering a stark contrast to hot, sandy deserts and tropical rain forests, the tundra is buried in snow and ice most of the year. However, life finds a way to flourish. During the short summer, flowers bloom and animals roam the land even though temperatures rarely reach 50 degrees Fahrenheit! This title will teach young readers how plants and animals survive in severe cold.
