Swamps are often seen as a dangerous and useless. They are often drained to create farmland or to reduce diseases. But such measures can be disastrous. Who Needs a Swamp? explores wetlands and their importance in the food chain and in preserving our soil and clean water. The book celebrates the world's diversity by presenting a different ecosystem: its land and water, its animals and plants. The art is brimming with creatures and ecological features, described in fact-filled notes at the end of the book and in a useful glossary and map.

I really liked the illustrations and how they said that swamps are not useless and proved it. It's also good for science.

I like who needs a swamp because it tells you about different animals and it doesn't feed you to many facts at the same time it sepperats them

I didn't like this book because it was boring. It is not as exciting as the other ones. It was about a swamp and what animals live there. It would have been more interesting if the author used more exciting and adventurous words.

I really like the pictures and the paintings especially the last page. I also liked how it shows how the animals bring food to their babies

i read ''who needs a swamp'' was a pretty good book. although it was not the best book i've ever read. you learn about the animals that live in the swamp, why the swamp is so inportant. so i think u should read it but i didnt enjoy the book so much.
