This is a fascinating and very information rich book. Even though I’m well educated and a retired librarian, I was amazed at how much I learned while reading this book. It does a stellar job of combining facts, pictures and very well written descriptions of all the varied types of grasslands on our planet. It differentiates between them in terms of temperature range, plants and annual precipitation. In addition, it discusses animals and birds native and adapted to each one as well as threats to the health of each mini-ecosystem. It’s an impressive and very useful book, well worth considering for school and public libraries.
