Teach early Social Studies concepts and foundational reading skills with this precisely leveled text.
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.
Bogs, swamps, and marshes are all different types of wetlands. Many plants and animals rely on this biome for reproduction, safety, or simply a drink of water. Some need to adapt to this environment, like the mangrove trees that get oxygen by growing roots above the surface. Take a closer look at wetland critters and vegetation in this engaging title for developing readers!
Chinchillas, pikas, and goats can all be found on mountains, climbing and scurrying around large boulders and steep slopes. Mountains not only provide homes for many living things, but they also affect weather patterns. Beginning readers will love navigating the pages of this book on the mountain biome!
