Review by Booklist Reviews

Using full-page color photographs and concise, informative writing, the Ecosystems Inside Out series offers readers an overview of biomes around the globe. Each volume begins with an introduction to the concept of ecosystems before moving on to examine specific examples within the featured biome. The wildlife, vegetation, climate, and terrain of each are joined by "Eco Up Close" fact boxes that highlight a specific plant or animal and "Eco Focus" bubbles that pose ecological questions to prompt critical thinking. Forests Inside Out takes readers though tropical rain forests, freezing taiga forests, and oceanic kelp forests. Concerns, such as deforestation, are raised. Each book ends with an activity, usually requiring adult supervision; a glossary; and additional resources. A solid primer with great visual appeal. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
