Children's LiteratureAs part of the "Ecosystems" series by the publisher that has brought you information on caves, forests, grasslands, and swamps, here is the latest about a freshwater lake. There are wonderful color photographs to accompany the descriptions of lakes and the creatures that inhabit the lake or the nearby areas. One particularly interesting fact concerned the large number of freshwater lakes that have been found under the ice of Antarctica by satellite photography. The formation and life cycles of lakes, plus their importance in the earth's water cycle, is covered. The relationship that humans have with lakes and artificial lakes created by human-created-dams are also topics of discussion. There is a glossary, an index, and a bibliography of books and websites for further study. 2006, KidHaven Press/Thomson Gale, $ 23.70. Ages 6 to 10.
