Earth's Biomes: Forests (Our Living World)












From the arid sand dunes of the Sahara Desert to the colorful coral beds of the Great Barrier Reef, Our Living World takes young readers on an engaging tour of seven of Earth's ecosystems. Students will learn about the key plants and animals that make each ecosystem unique. They'll also get a glimpse of humanity's effects, both positive and negative, on the habitats of countless creatures. Informative sidebars, suggested activities, and supplemental reference materials throughout the text contribute to a well-rounded portrait of our world's natural wonders.
