From the Series Nature's Neighborhoods: All about Ecosystems

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 3   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

As aphids suck nectar from the stems of plants, a ladybird leaves its winter hiding place to start munching on aphids. As worms wriggle through the soil helping to bring nutrients and rainwater to the roots of the garden’s trees, a robin hunts for worms to feed to its chicks. And when autumn arrives, seeds from the sunflowers and fruit from the old apple tree become food for birds and mice. Step by step, readers will explore a backyard habitat and discover how all the living things form an ecosystem and rely on each other for survival.
