MountainsPicture Book - 2009
A classroom favorite, this beginner's guide to mountains is from Cathryn and John Still, creators of the award-winning About Habitats and About... series.
"A beautiful and informative selection." ― School Library Journal
In this addition to the award-winning About Habitats series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what mountains are and what kinds of animals and plants live there.
Noted wildlife illustrator John Sill uses detailed, full-color illustrations to depict the diversity of mountain landscapes―from the snow-covered peaks of the Himalaya Mountains to the forested slopes of the Appalachians. A glossary and afterword provide more details. Perfect for early childhood and elementary units on geography, nature, and environment.
The About Habitats series introduces children to specific habitats and their living and nonliving components. Each book in the series provides information about the nature and characteristics of the habitat while the full-page illustrations expand on that information.
