Product Description

Amazon Review

How do you tell the difference between toad spawn and frogspawn? What do bream eat? If you've ever wondered what exactly goes on in and around rivers and ponds, this book is for you. Beginning with a seasonal romp through a typical pond, author Steve Barker reveals when various plants bloom, how snails breed and what becomes of aquatic creatures under ice. He then opens your eyes to a startling world of fish, waterfowl and water birds, plus waterside mammals like mink, shrews and otters. See how trout develop, observe bittern, heron and kingfisher skulls, and get a close-up view of a beaver's scaly tail. Learn how amphibians, reptiles, plants, insects and other pond creatures live and breed in fresh water habitats. A fine introduction to a fascinating ecosystem. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Thought it would have had a bit more in real life pictures on pond life. Is ok but not real impressive.

Eyewitness books are wonderful 17 Dec. 2012
By Julia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My son loves these books with all the wonderful descriptions and pictures. He is only 7 so he cannot read them on his own but he still loves to read them with me at night before bed. I highly recommend these books to those who want a educational book that any child would enjoy.
