Product Description

From Booklist

Suitable for both classroom use and independent research, this installment in the Our Wild World series provides an up-close look at the fascinating flora and fauna of the world-famous Everglades. Concise chapters examine the three surprisingly diverse habitats of this unique ecosystem—saw grass marshes, deep sloughs and gator holes, and tree islands—and the climate conditions that shape this wet, steamy world. Lynch, a nature writer, who took many of the photographs here, smoothly pairs engaging prose with numerous color photographs that capture the beauty of the region in both sweeping panorama and close-up detail. Alligators, of course, play a starring role here, but to his credit, Lynch infuses his accounts of other Everglades life-forms with equal allure. Inset boxes extend the main narrative, often highlighting the ways humans threaten the delicate balance of this ecosystem. The concluding list of further resources, may be too brief to fully satisfy the curiosity this polished, informative volume is likely to elicit. McKulski, Kristen --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Beautifully illustrated with full-color photography throughout Sept. 6 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Beautifully illustrated with full-color photography throughout, The Everglades introduces young readers to the treasures of the Everglades ecosystem, from its alligators to its rare flowers, reptilian and amphibian inhabitants shaded green or brown, bears, raccoons, panthers, and much more. Fun facts abound in this picturebook: "Raccoons have a better sense of touch in their front paws than any other meat-eating animal. They use their sensitive paws to search for crabs, crayfish, clams, frogs, and snails in shallow water. When early settlers saw the animals splashing on the edge of marshes they wrongly thought they were washing their food." Highly recommended for children's collections in both school and public libraries.
