Product description

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5, younger with the help of an adult. From the One Small Square series, this heavily illustrated book encourages children to observe the plants and animals that live in, on, above, and around a pond. With safety concerns and respect for wildlife apparent, it shows children how to measure off a 24-inch square for observation, keep a notebook, look underwater with a homemade viewer, examine mud dwellers, and make a diorama of the pond. Though the format is rather crowded, the book has good, full-color illustrations (sometimes magnified to show microscopic views), and a wealth of information about the rich ecosystem of a pond. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

From the Back Cover

Pond life is not as placid and familiar as it might seem. Under a lily pad. . .beneath the ice. . .in just one drop of pond water, you'll find a complex ecosystem, teeming with life. A close look at one small square of a typical pond shows it to be a not-always-peaceable kingdom, where birds, insects, fish protozoa, and plants all coexist. With the fascinating facts and fun-to-do activities in this book, children will discover that, when it comes to pond life, still water runs deep. Pond is just one of the exciting, vibrantly illustrated volumes in the critically acclaimed ne Small Square series of science and nature books for children ages 7 and up. Each book includes: Stunning full-color illustrations of each habitat and its creatures; Motivating experiments and activities, along with clear, diagrammed instructions and safety tips; A picture field guide to the habitat; A glossary-index and resource list. One Small Square--an eye-opening series originally published in hardcover--puts the whole world in perspective for children, one small square at a time. Each book is a thrilling, up-close encounter with mammals, insects, plants, birds, fish, amphibians, bacteria, and the ecosystems in which they live. "Science education at its best."--Science Books and Films. Donald M. Silver is the author of more than 40 science books for children and teachers alike. In addition to the award-winning One Small Square series, he has written The Animal World, Why Save the Rain Forest?, Extinction Is Forever, and The Dinosaur Activity Book--all illustrated by Patricia J. Wynne.
