Learning about the world"s habitats is fun and engaging with these interactive mini-books and manipulatives. Simple text and realistic art offer children a glimpse into coral reefs, deserts, caves, rain forests, and more, and give them an understanding of how various animals and plants are adapted to these habitats. Teacher pages include background information, easy how-to"s, extension activities, and print and Web resources. A great way to introduce children to science and nonfiction!
