Item Details

The second title in a new series for the very young highlights the defining characteristics of various habitats, including plant and animal life, using examples from around the world. Award-winning author Cathryn Sill and her husband, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill, offer young readers a first glimpse into wetlands habitats. In simple, easy-to-understand language, this guide teaches children what wetlands are, what kinds of animals and plants live there, and how wetlands help maintain the delicate balance among Earth's environments. John Sill's beautifully detailed full-color illustrations reflect the diversity of wetlands topography-from salt marshes along the seacoasts to tropical mangrove swamps. The astonishing varieties of wetland plants and the birds, mammals, and fish that live there are also represented. A glossary and afterword provide young readers with further fascinating details on the earth's wetlands, their creatures, and their conditions.
