Description

REVIEWS:


 
4/1/07 Library Media Connection
This series on habitats conveys its information in clear, simple text. A Word Hunt section begins each book, sharing photographs of new words such as coral polyps and lichens. These words then appear in bold-face type somewhere in the book. At the end of each book, a Your New Words section defines them. This reiteration reinforces the key words that are important to describing and understanding about life in each of the different habitats. The photographs with captions are by far the highlight sharing up-close views of the three habitats. A two page Day in the Life section covers the lives of a rattlesnake, a snow leopard, and an eel in the books reviewed. While not comprehensive, the books touch on the basics, gearing it toward a very young audience. Glossary. Index. Recommended. [Editor's Note: Other habitats covered in the series are the rain

 
forest, swamp, and savanna.]
