Price: $8.99
Discover the Desert takes readers ages 8–12 across breathtaking landscapes to explore the plants and animals of the desert, its lost civilizations, and today’s desert-dwelling cultures. “Try This” science and history activities—from creating mirages to fashioning an Anasazi clay bowl—help kids feel like they’re really in the desert. Kids will learn about the strange Saharan rock formation called desert roses by growing salt crystals, find out how life adapts to the parched American Southwest by putting together a cactus dish terrarium, and preserve food the way nomadic camel herders of Central Asia do by turning yogurt into cheese. Discover the Desert makes clear why adventurers have always been drawn to the world’s deserts. Learn what there is to see and do, how living things adapt to the desert’s harsh conditions, and why the health of the planet depends on the careful treatment of the desert’s many resources.
