Spanish readers: 5 books to learn about habitats

Many books about animals and their habitats are wonderful ways to help children explore nature and the Spanish language. The earth is full of amazing ecosystems. From deserts to jungles, habitats have unique environments.

Habitats are simply the places where different species interact. And many of these species will compete for shelter and food. Microscopic organisms and enormous animals are all part of the habitats they live in.

How can these species be able to coexist? Can a polar bear survive in the tundra or simply in the icy artic? Can lizards survive in dry arid conditions or humid warm climate?

Many species have not only adapted to the variations of climate change. But they have evolved to exist in deserts, jungles, forests, artic, or mountains. The following non-fiction books are excellent sources to learn about the different habitats around the earth.
