Overview

Packed with fun and interesting sidebars, color photographs, and artwork by other kids, this award-winning series is as useful in the classroom as it is fun to readers. Designed to educate, entertain, and help create environmental stewards for our planet, the format presents science in a way that helps teachers address both national and state science and literacy standards. Topics are presented in convenient spreads that enable readers to flip throughout the books, and they provide definitions, resources, poetry, and quotes by celebrated people. The entire series is recommended by the National Science Teachers Association.

Examining what happens to the environment during the winter season, this take-along guide helps children observe and understand the habits of the wildlife in their locale. They will discover how various plants and animals adapt to survive, where the insects, reptiles, and amphibians retreat to, and when they might expect to see them again. Differences between cryptic coloration and camouflage as well as hibernation and torpor are identified and explored, along with why some animals migrate and others don’t. Among the creatures covered are bears, deer, foxes, rabbits, squirrels, cardinals, chickadees, and titmice.
