Aquatic Animals & Habitats: Fresh Water
Amphibians and reptiles are similar but different and are often confused. Children ponder the similarities and differences between the two animal classes through stunning photographs and simple, non-fiction text. A photographic sneak peak at the extraordinary duties of aquarists as they not only feed and care for animals, but help to conserve whole species. Do busy beavers ever take a break? This photographic journal documents a year as the beavers build their dam, raise their young and gather food before the winter months come again. Come along on a journey through the aquatic habitat of a forested wetland. Meet a wide variety of animals that call the soggy forest home. There is a commotion on the lake: he hops, he squawks, and worst of all, he can’t stand still! Will the young heron learn to stand still like his elders? Sing along to this light-hearted romp while learning about the different food chains within a single ecosystem.  Which animals come out on top, and which animals end up as snacks?  Hey Diddle Diddle teaches children about the food web, the circle of life, and the part that each living creature plays within an ecosystem.  When a boy and his mother take their dog Miles on a peaceful canoe ride, they find themselves frantically racing to save a mother loon and her family!
This sequel to the award-winning Water Beds takes readers on an around-the-world boat ride to learn how mammals sleep in or around nine major rivers of the world on all continents except Antarctica. A young girl’s illustrated, photographic journal follows salamanders through complete metamorphosis from the cold, rainy spring “Salamander Night” egg laying to adult stage in late summer. Beatrix the beaver longs to be good at something. Her brother Bevan is an expert at repairing the lodge with mud and twigs. Her sister Beverly is a superb swimmer and underwater gymnast. What makes Beatrix stand out? Tudley, a painted turtle, adopts other animals’ behaviors—simply because he doesn’t know he can’t! All the while, he uses his special behaviors to help other animals and learn a little about himself. Marcel, a young tundra swan, is tired from the first half of a winter migration, so he decides to stay up north. He soon realizes he’s not cut out for life on ice. What will he do?
