Author Event: Cathryn and John Sill

Page 158 Books is pleased to welcome author Cathryn Sill and illustrator John Sill for a storytime featuring their book, ABOUT HABITATS: TUNDRAS. This will be a digital author event hosted on our Crowdcast channel. Registration for this event can be found here.


This beginner’s guide to tundras explores the unique attributes of this cold habitat, showcasing its beauty and plant and animal diversity.


Author and former educator Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what tundras are, what kinds of animals and plants live there, and how certain species have adapted to the unique, harsh environment. The book covers the characteristics of Arctic, Antarctic, and alpine tundras. John Sill’s detailed, realistic paintings reflect the beauty and diversity of the habitat. A glossary and afterword provide more detail for further exploration.


Ideal for early childhood and elementary education units on biomes and environments, geography, habitats, and nature.


The award-winning About Habitats series introduces children to specific habitats and their living and nonliving components. Each book in the series provides information about the nature and characteristics of the habitat while the full-page illustrations expand on that information.
