Synopsis

US Life Cycles: River by Henry Holt

Each book in this essential series reveals the life cycles of ten animals in a particular habitat. The life cycles link together to create three food chains. At the end of the book is a simple overview of how the three food chains interact to create a food web. With clear text and punchy photographs, this is a captivating introduction to habitats and ecosystems.

Reviews

NSTA RecommendsThis book stands out among other books that cover the topic of community ecology. Comparing rivers in South America and North America with ponds in Europe, it integrates many concepts into one unifying theme: river communities. . . . [U]se this book as a supplement to lessons covering food chains/food webs, life cycles, or even biomes. Reading level is appropriate for the intended audience (grades 2-5). The book would be a smart addition to a classroom library for use in a community ecology unit.
