9781910549629: Welcome to the Backyard (Nature's Neighborhoods: All about Ecosystems)

How do worms help the sunflowers in the backyard obtain water? Who will become dinner for the family of robins that lives in the old apple tree? Which backyard residents will visit the sunflowers and help them produce seeds? And what tiny creatures will feed on the apple tree's leaves once they fall to the ground in autumn? Readers will discover how living things depend on each other and their environment for survival. Packed with facts, core-curriculum information, and fantastic photographs that support the text, each book takes readers on a mini safari through a habitat. Like piecing together a jigsaw puzzle, readers will discover connections and interactions between the plants, animals, and other living things that make each natural neighborhood their home.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–4—These thoughtful overviews provide selected examples of the roles of plants and animals within an ecosystem. Basic facts about the habitat are followed by simple profiles of the creatures that live there. Each spread ends with a boxed question that is answered with the subsequent page turn, which neatly supports the theme of connections within a habitat. A spread on rock-clinging seaweed, for example, leads into one on animals that also stick to rocks, followed by a transition to barnacle eating processes. Continuity is further reinforced by introducing an animal, then returning to it later. In Pond, for example, dragonfly eggs are laid, nymphs appear seven pages later, and they emerge as dragonflies toward the end. Visual support comes from a mixture of full-page photos and smaller insets, many of which include helpful labels. Each title ends with a useful food web diagram. VERDICT Excellent introductions to how ecosystems function.
