In this addition to the About Habitats series, award-winning author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what mountains are and what kinds of animals and plants live there. John Sill's detailed, full-color illustrations reflect the diversity of mountain landscapes"from the snow-covered peaks of the Himalaya Mountains to the forested slopes of the Appalachians. A glossary and afterword provide further fascinating details about mountains 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
