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 while learning about 
food chains. Which animal comes 
out on top, and which is a snack? 
Find out about the circle of life 
and the part each creature plays.  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?
