Synopsis

Mountains by Donna Latham

Investigating a variety of biomes and today's natural and human threats to their preservation, this interactive series challenges young readers to look at how their own actions influence the planet's health. Four distinct environments are explored in detail, showcasing the assortment of plants and animals that inhabit these outdoor communities as well as how they have adapted to their surroundings. Offering fascinating facts on each ecosystem along with vocabulary-building sidebars, these guides show budding scientists how they can contribute towards ongoing conservation efforts. The majesty of the earth's alpine biome is captured in this guide that discusses threats such as acid rain, climate change, and habitat destruction, clearly depicting how these factors affect the world's mountains.

Reviews

These books are fabulous examples of informational text. Each book contains a table of contents, glossary, and index. They have interesting content, great picture/text support, and wonderful use of side text and headings. They are grade appropriate and correlate to the classroom curriculum for grades 4-6. --Marla Conn, educational consultant on the Biome Quest series
