Stories deal with how plants and animals rely on living (food web, shelter needs using plant material, animal-related seed dispersal) and nonliving (climate, wind, rocks, soil, and water) things to meet their basic needs for survival, and how those needs must be met within their habitats. 32 pages each. Includes the 10 books listed below:
A Day in the Deep - Travel down to the ocean floor to encounter creatures you never even knew existed! Most ecosystems need sunlight, but deep in the ocean where the sun doesn't shine, animals have adapted some very interesting ways to see, protect themselves, and eat. Discover the unique habitats, adaptations, and food chains of these deep-sea creatures.
A Day in the Salt Marsh - Fun-to-read, rhyming verse introduces readers to the hourly changes in the marsh as the tide comes and goes. Watch the animals that have adapted to this ever-changing environment as they hunt for food or play in the sun, and learn how the marsh grass survives even though it is covered by salt water twice a day.
A Day on the Mountain - Rhyming verse and vibrant illustrations take readers up a mountain, from the forested bottom to the snow-covered top. While climbing, they witness the changing habitats and meet the plants and animals that live there.
Gopher to the Rescue! A Volcano Recovery Story - The forest animals are surprised when a volcano suddenly explodes, covering the land in gritty, warm ash and rocks that make it unlivable for many plants and animals. Gopher survives in his underground burrow with food to eat. How does Gopher help bring life back to the mountain? Based on the observations made in the aftermath of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.
Habitat Spy - Told in rhyming narrative, this intriguing book invites readers to search for and find plants, invertebrates, birds, mammals, and more that live in 13 different habitats: backyard, beach, bog, cave, desert, forest, meadow, mountain, ocean, plains, pond, river, and cypress swamp. Students will spend hours looking for and counting all the different plans and animals while learning about what living things need to survive.
The Hungriest Mouth in the Sea - The animals of the South Sea are hungry, but who is the hungriest of them all? The kicking krill may swarm and the blue cod are out hunting for dinner, but neither is fierce enough to be tops in this habitat. Could it be the lurking sharks, pointy-tailed rays, or the toothy barracuda? Dive into this rhythmic text to discover who is at the top of this food chain.
Ocean Seasons - Seasons change in the ocean much as they do on land. Spring brings new plants and baby animals, while summer oceans are aglow with sparkly plankton lights, and autumn winds blow across the open water. In winter, the humpback whales migrate to warmer waters, just as some land animals move to warmer climates. In fun, fanciful form, students learn about plants and animals that are joined through the mix of seasons, food webs, and habitats beneath the waves. While set in the Pacific, similar changes occur in all the world's oceans.
Once Upon an Elephant - From stopping wildfires to planting seeds, one animal is the true superhero that keeps the African savanna in balance. Elephants dig to find salt for animals to lick, their deep footprints collect water for everyone to drink, and they eat young trees to keep the forest from overtaking the grasslands. Read along to discover the important role this keystone species plays in the savanna and explore what would happen if the elephants vanished.
Prairie Storms - Learn about a year of ever-changing prairie weather and how the animals living in these grasslands adapt and survive in this harsh climate. Each month, read about a new animal, and learn about everything from how a prairie grouse can survive the January snows to how an earless lizard escapes the harsh, unrelenting drought of August.
Sounds of the Savanna - From the first light of dawn until the sun sets at night, the savanna is alive with noise. A lion roars in the early morning, a young baboon shrieks to warn others of danger at noon, and a young mouse squeals at dusk. What are the animals saying and why?
