As part of our 40th anniversary promotion, we are offering 40% off a collection of books every month. This month’s theme is Habitats: Near and Far.
Dawn has several series that look at habitats and one of our most popular is Anthony Fredericks’ Under One Rock and Near One Cattail. These books take a close-up view of common habitats we can all explore.
In Under One Rock: Bugs, Slugs, and other Ughs, a child turns over a large stone and uncovers a whole world that had been hiding at his feet.
In Near One Cattail: Turtles, Logs, and Leaping Frogs, a “bog-boggy place” reveals dragonflies, frogs, turtles, and ducks.
Also available at a 40% discount this month is The Swamp Where Gator Hides by Marianne Berkes. This wily alligator hides in the mud while other creatures wander by. Watch out! Following along with the goofy rhyme, children learn about swamp ecosystems, predator-prey interactions, and conservation.
The Mouse in the Meadow and Mighty Mole and Super Soil track meadow habitats above and below ground with a day in the life of endearing animal characters, while The Prairie that Nature Built explores a prairie habitat using cumulative rhyme that will have kids chanting along.
Tall Tall Tree is a counting book that explores the world way up high in a Redwood tree, while The Tree in an Ancient Forest looks at a three-hundred-year-old Douglas Fir that supports the forest around it and many, many creatures.
We can’t forget about urban ecoystems and the creatures that thrive in them. Our final book in the collection is Wild Ones: Observing City Critters which follows a mischievous dog as it races around the city on a day of freedom.
