Product Details


“Nonfiction picture books are not nearly as common as they once were, but author and illustrator Karen Patkau proves that the genre is not dead. Her beautiful illustrations and maps present information in an easy to understand format for young readers…. Each book includes simple text for beginning nonfiction readers supported by detailed illustrations of the plant and animal life in each ecosystem…. All of the books in this series contain valuable information supported with illustrations that help young readers understand the content. The message in each is clear. We need to care about these different ecosystems.”
—Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

“Karen Patkau explore the importance of these vastly different regions, and the unique role they play in the world. Each book brims with the captivating creatures that make their homes here, ecological features, fact notes, a glossary and a map.”
