Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Most people think of streams as small bodies of water running down mountainsides, too small to be considered a biome. However, the diversity of life found in a streambed is incredibly varied: tiny water bugs to large bears; ground ferns to tall trees. While streams may not compete with a rushing river in size and power, they certainly hold their own on the scientist's page. This book, one of the "Living in a Biome" series, examines what make streams unique. Each spread as a short bit of text, perfect for early readers, accompanied by a large, beautiful photograph illustrating that point. It is the photographs that will encourage kids to read the text. There is a glossary and index in the back, but the best reference feature is the web page. By typing in a code found at the back of the book, facthound.com will bring up a list of kid-friendly sites. This makes this book truly interactive. Science teachers will find it easy to meld into a lesson on biomes and parents will find it easily fits into the reference shelf at home, but it won't stay on the shelf very long. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 7.
