Marshes and Swamps

A Wetland Web of Life

Series: Wonderful Water Biomes

By Philip Johansson

Part land and part water, wetlands are host to huge numbers of plants and animals. Find out how cattails are able to grow in the saturated soil of the swamp without oxygen. Dig beneath the swampy surface of a marsh and uncover the web of life that passes energy from the sun to cordgrass, crabs, and herons. In this interesting book, you will learn how each living thing plays a part in the world of the wetlands biome.

". . . the book is simply beautiful and filled with both big ideas and those lovely little strange facts that kids find so absorbing in intermediate grades. This is a wonderful resource for the teacher of elementary students who needs a way to enrich the concepts of a biome and food web or provide richly informative free-reading materials. There’s a lot of potential here for reports . . ."
