Children's LiteratureBell and Prokos provide indepth information on each aspect of ecology in a format designed to be used in a classroom setting. They begin with a basic definition and description of the ecology of a rain forest and then proceed to provide in-depth information about each segment of the rain forest environment through an "interview" with a macaw. The authors then highlight the area around Mount St. Helens and how the environment has begun to recover after the eruption. The following chapters continue in the same way, showcasing specific environments and how plants and animals interact with each other and how they depend on everything in their environment for the continued health of their habitat. Most chapters include an activity to help children better understand the information presented. The authors avoid preaching, but still convey how important it is to be aware of the environment and how to protect it. Full-color photos of different earth environments and full-color drawings fill each page. This title is part of the "Our Planet Earth" series. 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 7 to 12.
