About Habitats: Forests
This beginner's guide explores the major attributes of the forest 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 forests are how various species of animals and plants have adapted to life in these habitats. John Sill's detailed, full-color illustrations show the characteristics of different types of forests - from the cold boreal forests of the northern hemisphere to the warm tropical forests near the equator. A glossary and afterword provide further fascinating details about forests 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
