Hot days, cold nights, and constant dryness: welcome to life in the desert! This fascinating biome is home to diverse plants, animals, and insects whose ability to survive in such a harsh environment will fascinate readers. Important life science concepts such as adaptation and survival are taught through age-appropriate language. Readers learn about desert creatures' interdependent relationships and how each creature plays an important role in keeping its ecosystem balanced. Readers also learn how human intervention can harm desert biomes, which are identified through a simple yet informative global map. Colorful photos complement this information-rich science text!
