SUMMER WORLD: SEASON OF BOUNTY

SUMMER WORLD: SEASON OF BOUNTY
$14.99

With snow melting and spring approaching, the animal kingdom awakens. In Summer World, Bernd Heinrich brings students an up-close and personal view of that awakening and rebirth. Almost all life on the surface of the earth derives its energy from the sun, either directly through photosynthesis or indirectly by consuming plants, making summer the time when nature is most active-feeding, fighting, mating, and nesting. From frogs, wasps, and caterpillars to hummingbirds and woodpeckers, Heinrich

explores these animals' adaptations for surviving and procreating during the short window of summer, and he delights in the seemingly infinite feats of animal inventiveness he discovers there.
