Life Cycles: Forest

Lifecycles

Kingfisher

In this series that covers all of Earth's key habitats, each book reveals the life cycles of eleven animals which link together to create three different food chains. At the end of the book a simple overview helps readers understand how the three food chains interact to create a food web-the perfect first introduction to this core science concept.
 
The world’s forests are rich habitats that support an incredible diversity of life from the smallest insects to amazing predators at the top of the food chain such as the tiger and the red-tailed hawk. Life Cycles: Forest by Sean Callery explores how eleven of these creatures—from temperate forests in Asia, North America, and southern Africa—link together to create three food chains. Children will love the beautiful photography and the clear visual explanations of each stage of each animal’s lifecycle. The combination of bright design, clear structure, and appealing wildlife makes this a great introduction to life in forests around the world.

REVIEWS

Praise for Life Cycles: Forest

NSTA Recommends

This book stands out among other books that cover the topic of community ecology because of its integration of many concepts into one unifying theme: forest communities. It addresses forest in southern Asia, North America, and southern Africa. The book takes the reader through food chains in each of these temperate forests around the world, emphasizing patterns and similarities. . . . [U]se this book as a supplement to lessons covering food chains/food webs, life cycles, or even biomes. Reading level is appropriate for the intended audience (grades 2–5). The book would be a smart addition to a classroom library for use in a community ecology unit.
