Fish and fungi, plants and protists, mammals and monera all seem to get along swimmingly in and around the peaceful-looking pond environment.

This beautifully illustrated "you are there" science book--part of the critically acclaimed One Small Square series--is brimming over with fun-to-do experiments and activities for children ages 7 and up. Includes a pond field guide, a glossary-index, and a resource list.

From the Back Cover:

Pond life is not as placid and familiar as it might seem. Under a lily pad. . .beneath the ice. . .in just one drop of pond water, you'll find a complex ecosystem, teeming with life. A close look at one small square of a typical pond shows it to be a not-always-peaceable kingdom, where birds, insects, fish protozoa, and plants all coexist. With the fascinating facts and fun-to-do activities in this book, children will discover that, when it comes to pond life, still water runs deep. Pond is just one of the exciting, vibrantly illustrated volumes in the critically acclaimed ne Small Square series of science and nature books for children ages 7 and up. Each book includes: Stunning full-color illustrations of each habitat and its creatures; Motivating experiments and activities, along with clear, diagrammed instructions and safety tips; A picture field guide to the habitat; A glossary-index and resource list. One Small Square--an eye-opening series originally published in hardcover--puts the whole world in perspective for children, one small square at a time. Each book is a thrilling, up-close encounter with mammals, insects, plants, birds, fish, amphibians, bacteria, and the ecosystems in which they live.
