Synopsis

Polar Lands by

Take an dip in the freezing waters of the poles and discover some of the amazing creatures that survive in these icy, seas and frozen lands. Hooves that dig, thick fur and swimming skills are just some of the special features these creatures have to help them hunt for food and stay alive. Some even huddle together to stay warm, but they all have bodies that are adapted to this unique habitat. What Animals Live Here? is a series of four books that explore four of the Earth's most interesting biomes and the variety of animals that live in them. Readers will encounter some familiar and some strange mammals, fish, reptiles, birds, insects and other invertebrates and learn about some of their incredible adaptations that mean they can survive in these environments. Short and simple blocks of text make these perfect books to dip into at random or read from cover-to-cover for readers aged 5+.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
