Up In The Air looks at the habitats above our heads, uncovering the insects that make their homes in tree trunks and the animals that move from tree to tree in towering rainforests. It develops sky-watching skills so children can track the migration of birds and name the stars and planets of the night sky. As well as discovering the joy nature can bring to us, a strong conservation message helps children learn how they can give back to the environment. The living things inside this book are vital for our planet's future, whether they are insects pollinating plants or trees helping to make the air we breathe."-- Provided by publisher.
