River and Lake Life

River and Lake Life

by Jinny Johnson

Hardcover(Library Binding)



Almost three-quarters of our planet is covered by water, and these watery worlds are home to an amazing variety of plant and animal life.

Only three percent of the Earth's water is fresh, but this freshwater is vital to life on Earth. Rivers and lakes are home to many different animals and plants, from tiny insects to fast-swimming salmon, as well as mammals such as beavers and otters and reptiles such as turtles and snakes.

With vivid photographs and clear text, River and Lake Life is a fascinating introduction to this important environment.
