Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-4. With very simple text in large type and lots of clear color photographs, these two titles in the True Books--Ecosystems series introduce some basic facts about climate and geography, and about the plant and animal life in each kind of ecosystem. Stille also explains why rain forests and wetlands are important and makes a strong case for saving them. The plain style, accessible design, and beautiful photographs of landscapes and wildlife make this a good series for children's first research presentations, and the subjects will appeal to young conservationists. There's a useful glossary, and the bibliography includes books and several Web sites. Other books by Stille in the series, on deserts, grasslands, and oceans, are listed in the Series Roundup in this issue. --Hazel Rochman
