KIRKUS REVIEW

From the author of How Much Is a Million?, a guided tour of many of the animals and plants in three habitats, enhanced by vivid, jewel-like full-color photos of flora and fauna throughout the year: a satisfying introduction to ecology, with informative texts and pleasant format. Some highlights: Pond uses dramatic microphotography to highlight one-celled animals (including the hydra, paramecium, and desmids) and also follows the development of the mosquito and frog from egg ot adult; Forest provides a detailed look at the cecropia moth as well as the night-hunting saw-whet owl; Meadow focuses on pussywillow, dandelion, and monarch butterfly. Three useful, highly attractive nature titles.
