This picture book features wetland habitats in detailed watercolor illustrations with one or two sentence descriptions. Animals and plants featured in the illustration are listed on each page. Further information about each illustration are provided in the afterword. If I were to publish this book, I would include the afterword information along with the text in another font so that readers could chose the detail of information to read while keeping all of the text together. Companion books include About Habitats: Mountains and About Habitats: Deserts.
