Mountains Inside Out by James Bow

Ecosystems Inside Out explores the big picture of each amazing biome on Earth, then peels back its corners to reveal the fascinating details of the organisms that live there. Eco Focus boxes, locator maps, and an activity in each book help give young readers a close-up look at how living and nonliving things are interconnected in ecosystems. Let's climb a mountain-a towering, sky-scraping world that reaches high above Earth's surface. What can live so high up where it is harder to breathe and the hillsides are steep? Peel back the corners of a mountain to discover the incredible organisms that live in this ecosystem, from wolves and birds to frogs and goats.
