Slather on the sunscreen and get ready to journey to the desert biomes of the world in this nonfiction picture book!
In Destination Desert: Biome Explorers, kid scientists make the trek to four different types of deserts around the world—a hot and dry desert, a semi-arid desert, a coastal desert, and a cold desert. In each place, explorers discover the adaptations plants and animals such as cacti, shrubs, camels, ibex, and lizards have made to survive in these dry places! Plus, find out what humans can do to keep deserts from taking over too much of the land.
Scientifically accurate illustrations, photographs, fascinating facts, and a hands-on activity are all part of the opportunity for deeper learning about biomes. An introductory poem and glossary encourage language arts connections. Perfect as a real aloud or for beginning readers.
Destination Desert: Biome Explorers is part of a set of five books in the Picture Book Science series that explore the different biomes of Planet Earth. Other titles in this series include Grassland Globetrotting: Biome Explorers; Aquatic Adventures: Biome Explorers; Footsteps in the Forests: Biome Explorers; Tour the Tundra: Biome Explorers.
