From the Publisher

"Ideal for smaller early to middle grade collections." – School Library journal, Series Made Simple

School Library Journal


Gr 4–7—The world's most important biomes and the environmental threats they face are explored in this colorful series. Each of the four biomes has its own volume and features full-page, high-resolution photographs and infographics that provide lesser-known facts about these delicate and endangered ecosystems. This series contains current information; for example, in Restoring the Great Barrier Reef, Greta Thunberg is highlighted as an effective activist. Her inclusion will spark timely conversations that reflect what kids are seeing in the news. Learners will expand their reading comprehension thanks to the quiz at the end of each chapter, and infographics and simple maps provide context without being overwhelming. Boldface words with a glossary, an index, and suggestions for further reading are also included. VERDICT This series, ideal for smaller early to middle grade collections, offers an introduction to endangered biomes and ways to save them.
