Describes the life cycle of the giant saguaro cactus, with an emphasis on its role as a home for other desert dwellers.
This is such an interesting story. It tells all about the life of a cactus. Can you guess how long it takes for one of these cacti to grow to full height? I was very surprised to learn the facts. It is told in a very fun way. This story makes me want to visit the desert!
