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

How do worms help the sunflowers in the backyard obtain water? Who will become dinner for the family of robins that lives in the old apple tree? Which backyard residents will visit the sunflowers and help them produce seeds? And what tiny creatures will feed on the apple tree’s leaves once they fall to the ground in autumn? Readers will discover how living things depend on each other and their environment for survival. Packed with facts, core-curriculum information, and fantastic photographs that support the text, each book takes readers on a mini safari through a habitat. Like piecing together a jigsaw puzzle, readers will discover connections and interactions between the plants, animals, and other living things that make each natural neighborhood their home.
