This book is suitable for 9 to 12 years of age. Judy Press introduces young learners to North American plants, animals, and a variety of other creatures. Children will learn that habitat is another word for 'home' and why living things appear in some geographical regions, but not in others. Fun ecological and environmental activities help children understand their individual role and responsibility in caring for the habitats they encounter, while additional games and activities reinforce science concepts to further support learning. Do-it-yourself crafts follow each topic introduced. Young readers can learn what it feels like to carry a wildlife baby around by wearing a backpack all day or how snakes move without appendages as they slither on their tummies, memorable experiences that will help learners make important connections between an animal's behaviour and its habitat.
