New Nonfiction

Habitat Explorer

Using an imaginary journey as a vehicle, each title in this series invites children to closely examine the plants, animals, and organisms of a particular habitat. Children reading Desert Habitats, will board a helicopter for the Sahara Desert, where a guide and camel team await them (p. 4). Engaging and informative text (the guide is anxious to get started “… because, later in the day it will soar to near 120 F …, p. 5) is coupled with vivid photographs, illustrations, side panel information, glossaries and more recommend this series. An informative and imaginative approach to the study of the earth’s ecosystems. Other titles include Forest Explorer, Rain Forest Explorer, Mountain Explorer, and River Explorer. Recommended for grades 3-5.
