Sarah Hines Stephens Rainforests cover only 6 percent of the Earth's surface, yet they support more than half of the world's plant and animal species.

While a sliver of life exists on land, most of the planet's population thrives in the seas. Life underwater requires special adaptations that sound more at home in a specialeffects lab than in one of the earth’s largest ecosystems. Internal lights help dwellers of the deep seas pierce the darkness. Regenerating teeth keep hunters armed and sharp. From the great white shark at the top of the food-chain to the leafy sea dragon at the bottom, readers can explore what it takes to survive in this extremely crowded, high-pressure, watery world. NAM NGUYEN has a B.A. in Integrative Biology from the University of California at Berkeley with specialization in physiology and animal behavior. Her previous Kingfisher titles include Savage Safari and Micro Monsters. She lives in Benicia, California.

LIFECYCLES The first in a new series that introduces the amazing interconnections of the food chain

RAINFOREST by Sean Callery The rainforest is one of the most biodiverse environments on the planet with some of the most amazing creatures on earth. In this first introduction to lifecycles in three different rainforests, young readers learn how animals they might not expect— like the Amazon’s leafcutter ant and the jaguar—are part of the same food chain. At the end of each spread, readers use a picture clue to guess which predator is about to pounce. At the end of the book, young scientists explore how the three chains interact to form a food web, the basis for all life in an ecosystem.

Biodiversity in the ocean is critical to the health of the planet, yet very few texts are available that explain the variety of aquatic food chains. Through appealing photography, clear text, and engaging design, this book examines one lifecycle in each of three regions—the Indo-Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and the Atlantic and Indian oceans. At the end, the three cycles are woven together into one food web, demonstrating that all life in the ocean is linked. A wonderful introduction to an environment topic that is at the forefront of current events. SEAN CALLERY is a writer and elementary school teacher. He has written a number of non-fiction books as well as musicals and educational articles.

ALL ABOUT AMERICA

COLONISTS AND INDEPENDENCE by Sally Senzell Isaacs

It’s history in action in this dynamic series about the epic events that shaped America

Starting with Europe’s increasing interest in North America in the 1600s, and covering everything up to ratification of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, Colonists and Independence is an accessible account of the social and geographic forces that led to the founding of the United States. From the Pilgrims’ journey and the Mayflower Compact, to the day-to-day life in the early colonies, the role slavery played in building the nation, and the political crisis which lead to revolution and war, this book breathes new life into this vital period in American history.

Very few images conjure up the adventure and romance of American history like the cowboy, but real life on the range was not easy. Academically researched and engagingly written, this examination of cowboy history brings the frontier to life, from the danger of the stampede to outlaws, the coming of the Iron Horse, and the end of the open plains as ranchers fought for control of the land. Along with the familiar aspects of cowboy life like the cattle drive, and use of equipment, this title also covers lesser-known subjects like the role of women on the plains, and the important part played by African Americans and Mexican immigrants. This nonfiction gem is sure to inspire hours of historical exploration and discovery.

SALLY SENZELL ISAACS has written over 40 books for children about American history and other social studies topics. HILARIE N. STATON has been writing books for children for many years.

ALL ABOUT AMERICA

GOLD RUSH AND RICHES by Paul Robert Walker In 1848, carpenter James Marshall made a chance discovery that would change the face of the American West. That discovery: a few shiny flakes of gold in a riverbed he was digging. This book covers the entire period of the boom-andbust of one of the greatest expansion periods in US—the California Gold Rush. From the dangers of the journey, to the rough and tumble of the mining settlements, the day-to-day life of a miner, and the boomtowns that turned to ghost towns when the rush was over, this book will capture the imagination of young readers who love the idea of striking it rich.

From daily life on the wagon train, to resupplying at forts, confrontations with Indians, treacherous mountain crossings, and constant struggle, this book gives contemporary readers a glimpse of the enormous challenges of America’s westward expansion. PAUL ROBERT WALKER has written more than 25 books for adults and younger readers, with a special emphasis on the American West. He lives in Escondido, California. ELLEN H.
