From the burrow of the wombat to the eucalyptus perch of the koala, and from the sad song of the nightingale to the sharp cries of the noctule bat, a surprising variety of animals form the sights and sounds of our planet’s forest habitats! Full of maps, fun facts, photos, and illustrations, Seasonal Forests takes readers on a bear’s, bird’s, and bug’s-eye view of the temperate forests found on every continent except Africa and Antarctica. The volume’s special features include a glossary, maps, photographs, and an index.
From the driest deserts to the steamiest rain forests, animals everywhere have found inventive ways to survive and flourish. World Book’s Animals and Their Habitats series gives students in grades 5 to 8 an inspired mix of maps, fun facts, photos, diagrams, and illustrations to aid in their study of biology, geography, zoology, and ecology.
