A classroom favorite and award-winning first look at grasslands. From Cathryn and John Sill, creators of the award-winning About Habitats and About… series.

“Great for classroom sharing.” ?Booklist

In this addition to the celebrated About Habitats series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what grasslands are and what kinds of animals and plants live there.

Noted wildlife illustrator John Sill offers detailed, full-color illustrations to depict the diversity of grasslands—from the North American tallgrass prairies to African savannas—and the wide variety of the plants and animals that live there. A glossary and afterword provide further details to inspire more learning. Perfect for early childhood and elementary units on geography, environment, and nature.

The About Habitats series introduces children to specific habitats and their living and nonliving components. Each book in the series provides information about the nature and characteristics of the habitat while the full-page illustrations expand on that information.
