Description
It is never too early to instill in children an appreciation of the enormous and wondrous diversity of life on our planet. From Antarctic Icy Waters and Arctic Frozen Reaches to Deep Oceans, High Mountains, and Hot Deserts, this strikingly photographed series takes young readers to the far reaches of the Earth. Using clear, concise language readily accessible to budding naturalists, it introduces them to the world's harshest terrains and hardiest inhabitants, offering fascinating facts about animal physiology, behavior and survival strategies. Intended for a young audience, Living on the Edge provides just the right amount of information in just the right terms. An outstanding early introduction to animal and earth science, it is also a celebration of life.
