it was amazing

This book provides an introduction to the wildlife and habitats of four different ecosystems that exist in the United States. The author starts by explaining what an ecosystem is (a house where all the parts work together) in a very straightforward way. I get tired sometimes of books that use a lot of scientific jargon, but Corwin's books are very readable and easy to understand. The four ecosystems covered are Yellowstone, Monterey Bay, The Sonoran Desert, and The Everglades.

In each chapter, the reader is provided with descriptions of both the habitat and some of the wildlife that live there. Corwin does an excellent job of showing the reader how the different plants and animals each contribute to the uniqueness of the habitat. Not only is this book easy to read but the attractive layout and photographs add a lot to the overall package. Highly recommended.
