Overview

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. Tundras Inside Out, At first look, the barren and cold wilderness of the tundra does not seem to support much life. However, peel back the corners of this fascinating biome and discover the living organisms that thrive within one of Earth's toughest environments, from polar bears and caribou to seabirds and foxes.
