Overview

''These beautiful and scientifically accurate books capture your imagination with the excitement of observing nature and learning to interpret what you see.''—Dr. Nancy. B. Simmons, Assistant Curator, American Museum of Natural History. Dive into a clear, quiet, watery world where tiny coral animals build one of the wonders of the world—a rock-hard coral reef. A flashlightfish (no batteries included) glows and countless tentacles sway back and forth in search of food. This colorful, action-packed undersea circus will thrill you with snapping jaws, squirting ink, shooting darts, and hungry sharks devouring their prey. But you're safe—and magically dry, too—when you explore the greatest reef of them all—one small square at a time. Coral Reef is just one of the exciting, vibrantly illustrated volumes in the critically acclaimed One Small Square series of science and nature books for children ages 6-9. Each book includes: stunning full-color illustrations of each habitat and its creatures; motivating experiments and activities, along with clear, diagrammed instructions and safety tips; a picture field guide to the habitat; a glossary-index and resource list. One Small Square—an eye-opening series—puts the whole world in perspective for children, one small square at a time. Each book is a thrilling, up-close encounter with mammals, insects, plants, birds, fish, amphibians, bacteria, and the ecosystems in which they live. ''Science education at its best.''—Science Books and Films. ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR: Donald M. Silver is the author of more than 40 science books for children and teachers alike.
