Animals of the Desert
Readers get a global look at animals in their natural environments. Deserts, grasslands, oceans, and rain forests set the stage for learning about selected mammals, birds, reptiles, and invertebrates. An introductory spread in each book describes the feature habitat and indicates its locations on a world map.
