Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Johnson offers clear, concise definitions of these biomes and discusses the distinguishing features of each climate. She then focuses on the flora and fauna of these areas and their interactions. This approach will be especially effective in helping children alter their perception of the desert as a barren wasteland. The many full-color, close-up photographs and black-and-white drawings are sure to engage readers' interest. Curiously, the author omits the word "tropical" in Rain Forest, although the existence of temperate rain forests are noted on the identical biome maps in each book. Desert offers some unique information for reports and general interest reading. Because a number of introductory books on tropical rain forests have appeared in recent years, libraries may want to weigh demand before adding another one to their collections.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
