How do animals adapt to their habitat and seasonal changes? After reading this book, you’ll be an expert on how animals survive in cold weather or hot weather. Every school library should have Animal Adaptations: How We Live in Our Habitat on the shelf. This interesting, educational book should be a must-read for every science class. Author Sarah Lalonde explores how the animals have adapted to live in these habitats: rainforest, arctic, desert, ocean, wetlands, and temperate forest. I enjoyed reading the fascinating and fun facts about animals. Some animals who live in the desert are nocturnal and hunt at night when temperatures are cooler. Other animals have extra fur or blubber to survive cold temperatures.

The glossary at the back of the book is definitely a handy guide for teachers, parents, and children. I believe that all school and public libraries should have this handy guide on their shelves, but even home libraries will benefit from this interesting guide to animals and their habitats. Author Sarah Lalonde has included illustrations of the animals, which young readers will find interesting. The topics are well-organized and the habitats are in a logical order. This wonderful book includes a table of contents, glossary, and index to make it easy to find certain references. I believe children and their parents will find this book informative and easy to read. Teachers will find this book easy to teach with and to encourage discussion with students.
