About Habitats: Grasslands
This beginner's guide explores the major attributes of the grassland biome and showcases its striking beauty and remarkable diversity using examples from around the globe.
In this addition to the About Habitats series, award-winning author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what grasslands are and what kinds of animals and plants live there. John Sill's detailed, full-color illustrations reflect the diversity of grasslands and the wide variety of the plants and animals that live in grassland habitats. A glossary and afterword provide further fascinating details about grasslands to inspire readers to learn more.
Introduce your young students to habitats around the world with these beautifully illustrated, 48-page books by Cathryn and John Sill. Every two-page spread includes a full-page illustration of a habitat and some of the creatures who live there as well as a very short (4 lines or less) description of the habitat. The length of text is very appropriate for young ones with a shorter attention span, and the print is larger for younger readers. At the back of the book are resource pages. For every illustrated page in the book there is additional information for the parent/teacher to share or explain to the child. A glossary of new words, resources for further study, websites, and a book list are also found at the back of the book. ~ Donna
Each page contains simple text describing the plants and animals living in a particular habitat. This text is suited for elementary-level readers. More detailed information, which is suited for more advanced readers, can be found in a section at the end of the book.
The paintings throughout the book are beautifully done, and show the types of animals and plants that live in that habitat. Most paintings contain multiple animals and it is fun for children to spot and try to identify them all.
