Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Take a tour of different habitats as written by Jeff Corwin; fans of the TV show, Animal Planet will recognize this host. Begin with a brief and general introduction to the concept of an ecosystem, then explore four environments—Yellowstone National Park, the Sonoran Desert, Monterey Bay, and the Florida Everglades—to understand the ecosystem at work. While reading, you may feel as if you are on a tour with a guide that is explaining and pointing out different things as you come across them in your ecosystem adventure. The text moves along as it narrates the features of the ecosystem tour in a seamless flow through the chapter. Learn about the different animals, plants, and their environment along with how they work together to keep nature's balance in order. Find out how humans affect the ecosystem too. The color photographs are fantastic and there are captions that identify the animals and plants. The insets provide additional information and interesting facts; the map insets show where the four habitats are located.in the back of the book there is a glossary of the words which are found in bold print in the main body of the text. Enjoy the journey as you learn and discover interesting information about animals and their habitats. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
