From the Back Cover:

The water is shallow and murky. The ground is squishy. The air is muggy, and the whole place is buggy. Millipedes chomp on rotting ferns and mosses. A dragonfly devours other insects in midair. The trees have "knees". . .there are manatees. . .quick, sly snappers and green flytrappers. With this book, you can explore one small square of a swamp from the boardwalk in a park. . .at a nature preserve. . .or at home. This is a welcome new addition to a critically acclaimed One Small Square science and nature series 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 puts a 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. "Science education at its best."--Science Books and Films. Donald M. Silver is the author of more than 40 science books for children and teachers alike. In addition to the award-winning One Small Square series, he has written The Animal World, Why Save the Rain Forest?, Extinction Is Forever, and The Dinosaur Activity Book--all illustrated by Patricia J. Wynne.
