At first glance, deserts may appear to be desolate wastelands, but in reality they sustain a unique selection of plants and animals--each of which has developed a fascinating way to survive in this rigorous environment. Through photographs and poetry, young readers will discover a creosote bush bragging about its phenomenal longevity, a bulging saguaro majestically reaching for the sun, a collared lizard playfully pining for a fly-catching mate, and many others. Notes at the end provide fun, child-friendly information about the plants and animals mentioned in the book.

This was a very easy poem book about nature and the animals in the desert. I considered it great for learning about different climates and animals that are in our world. I would recommend this book for preK-3rd grade. Read full review
