Mushrooms and Fungi
Many different organisms live in forest environments, including mushrooms and other kinds of fungi. These are common sights in the forest, but how much do young readers really know about fungi? This elementary science curriculum topic is explained through accessible text to provide a better understanding of these complex life forms. Readers discover how other organisms, such as plants, benefit from certain fungi, while other organisms can be harmed by them. Informative fact boxes, an accessible glossary of science terms, and detailed, full-color photographs work together to give readers a deeper appreciation for all organisms that call the forest home.
