Pond life is not as placid and familiar as it might seem. Under a lily pad . . . beneath the ice . . . in just one drop of pond water, you'll find a complex ecosystem, teeming with life. A close look at one small square of a typical pond shows it to be a not-always-peaceable kingdom, where birds, insects, fish, protozoa, and plants all coexist. With the fascinating facts and fun-to-do activities in this book, children ages 7 and up will discover that, when it comes to pond life, still water runs deep.

This book includes:

  • Stunning, full-color illustrations of the habitat and its creatures
  • Motivating experiments and activities, along with clear, diagrammed instructions and safety tips
  • A picture field guide of the habitat
  • A glossary-index and resource list
