About the Series
Each book in this essential series reveals the life cycles of ten animals in a particular habitat which link together to create three 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 unique challenges of living in the world’s highest places require special adaptations to survive and thrive, from the lowest animals on the food chain like the mosquito and the earwig, right through fascinating top level predators like the elusive snow leopard and the wolverine. This title examines three food chains in the globe’s highest regions: the Andes of South America, the Rockies in North America, and the Himalaya of Asia. Beautiful photography and clear visual explanations of each stage of an animal’s life cycle give young readers an up-close glimpse of these uncommon creatures. At the end of each spread, picture clues let readers guess which predator is next on the chain. At the end, readers will emerge with a vivid understanding of how all life in these extreme environments is interconnected.

Praise for Life Cycles: Mountain

 

 

"This series on life cycles would be a fantastic collection to add to [a] school library or personal classroom. Each of the eleven animals is given two pages in the beautifully illustrated picture book, [and] would add a wonderful layer to any life cycles unit of study." --NSTA
