Take a world tour between the covers of a book! Environments of Our Earth guides children through six types of regions that are shaped by rainfall – or the lack thereof. Readers start the journey in dense tropical rainforests and woodlands, travel through grassy savannas and prairies, and end with dry steppes and deserts.
Throughout the book, attentive readers can compare how and why regions are alike and different. Readers will also discover fun facts about the wettest and driest places on Earth and the amazing effect rainfall has on plants, animals and people.
Environments of Our Earth is part of the I Wonder Why book series, written to ignite the curiosity of children in years F–6 while encouraging them to become avid readers. These books explore the marvels of geology, land forms, weather, environments and other phenomena related to science and nature.
Included in each volume is a Parent/Teacher Handbook with coordinating activities. The I Wonder Why series is written by award-winning science educators.
