Tundra introduces the first three books in its important new ecosystems series. Each title celebrates the world's diversity by presenting a different ecosystem: its land and water, its animals and plants. The art is brimming with creatures and ecological features, described in fact-filled notes at the end of each book and in a useful glossary and map. Jungles are treasures for all of us, regardless of where we live. In Who Needs a Jungle?""we learn about its vital role in providing us with oxygen, food, medicinal ingredients, and raw materials we use every day. Not only is each book informative and beautiful, but it is a call to action for everybody who cares about the world in which we live.

Review:

"Nonfiction picture books are not nearly as common as they once were, but author and illustrator Karen Patkau proves that the genre is not dead. Her beautiful illustrations and maps present information in an easy to understand format for young readers.... Each book includes simple text for beginning nonfiction readers supported by detailed illustrations of the plant and animal life in each ecosystem.... All of the books in this series contain valuable information supported with illustrations that help young readers understand the content. The message in each is clear. We need to care about these different ecosystems."
--Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

"Karen Patkau explore the importance of these vastly different regions, and the unique role they play in the world. Each book brims with the captivating creatures that make their homes here, ecological features, fact notes, a glossary and a map."
--The Waterloo Region Record
