Item description for A Saguaro Cactus (Small Worlds) by Jen Green...

Describes the various animals that live in and around the giant Saguaro cactus in the Sonoran Desert

Publishers Description
Small Worlds introduces children to ecology and ecosystems by concentrating on life in a small part of a larger habitat. Beginning with a description of the habitat, the book then looks at the plants and animals that live there. Young readers are introduced to:
-- the relationships that exist between groups of organisms and their environment
-- important ecological concepts, such as producers, consumers, decomposers, and food webs, explained and illustrated with examples
-- activities that encourage children to investigate ecosystems closer to home
-- tips on observing safely without disturbing nature or endangering themselves

Different kinds of cactus provide food, moisture, and shelter to a wide variety of plants and animals. A Saguaro Cactus tells young readers what animals make their home high above, on the ground, and deep below the cacti of the Sonoran Desert in the United States and Mexico. A special section shows children how to create their own miniature desert. Fantastic fact boxes give information about:
-- deserts around the world
-- plants that live in arid climates
-- how certain animals are able to survive in climates with a limited amount of water

Reviews - What do customers think about A Saguaro Cactus (Small Worlds)?

A saguaro cactus  Mar 29, 2000
This book contains so much more than the title would suggest. It tells not only of the cactus itself but also of the desert life that surrounds it and uses it. There are photographs and sketches of the desert animals as well as "side bars" with interesting information about desert life. Also included are suggested activities for using the new knowledge about desert life.
