Reviews

It's much more than a project book ... The 12 chapters are clearly written and introduce the polar regions in a comprehensive way, explaining the harsh climates that result from the Earth's tilt, the habitats and inhabitants (both animal and human), exploration and explorers, the lifestyle and research taking place in Antarctica, and the impact of global warming on the poles. The hands-on activities include science experiments, games, and crafts that range from papier-mache to sewing and carpentry. School Library Journal Clearly illustrated projects appear with well-written lessons ... A great glossary, and good vocabulary sidebars. Bonus: Printed on recycled content paper, with a note on the Green Press Initiative at front, this book's publisher walks the talk! CeciBooks Editorial and Publishing Consultancy Introduces readers to the animals and environments of the North and South poles, and then offers activitiesfrom making a polar bear coin collector to sun gogglesto provide fun, hands-on learning.
