Swamp by Donald Silver

Book Description

From bugs to birds...from mosses to manatees...a swamp is a complex ecosystem. But young readers won't be swamped during this amazingly accessible wade through a small square of wetlands, filled with exotic wildlife. Here is a fascinating look at the characteristics of swamp life...and the reasons why its survival is so important. Beautifully illustrated, with fun-to-do experiments and activities, a swamp field guide, and a picture-glossary index, and resource list, this work is from the "One Small Square" series, called "science education at its best" by "Science Books and Films".

Books By Author Donald Silver

Coral Reef by Donald Silver Coral Reef, Paperback (October 1997)

Suitable for ages 6 - 9, this title dives into a silent watery world where tiny coral animals grow together to form rock gardens of white, pink, and red-orange. It explores the action-packed undersea circus, jaws snap, tentacles sting, ink gets squirted, and fish suddenly glow while animals that look like plants sway gently.

Cactus Desert by Donald Silver Cactus Desert, Paperback (October 1997)

Children ages 6-9 look a little closer to find tortoises, toads, and lizards, not to mention the scary rattlesnake and scorpion. This title explores the enchantments of cactus country - plants send their roots deep into the earth to find water, and beetles stand on their head and shoot a stinky spray to fight off enemies.

Cave by Donald Silver Cave, Paperback (October 1997)

Includes illustrations of various habitats and its creatures. This title covers mammals, insects, plants, birds, fish, amphibians, bacteria, and the ecosystems in which they live.

Woods by Donald Silver Woods, Paperback (October 1997)

The woods are full of puzzles to be solved, clues to be found. This illustrated work offers a picture field guide, a glossary-index, and a resource list. It contains fun-to-do experiments and activities that helps reveal the secrets of the woods - from the strange meetings of lazy butterflies, to the miraculous "walking" of a twig.
