"Attractively illustrated, this book tells us all about the amazing Arctic tern"
With a cut-out cover and clever fold-out map at the end, this attractively illustrated book tells young children all about the Arctic tern, those extraordinary little birds who fly from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back every year (a journey of over 70,000 km). It follows one tern from the moment it hatches from its egg (diagrams allow us to see inside the egg), the tern itself describing its life as a chick then how, as a fledgling, it learns to fly and catch its own fish; and next how, at just three months old, it flies over the Atlantic to Africa and on to Antarctica. Not only do we learn about terns but we see the some of the other animals, birds and sea creatures they pass on their long journeys. The tern’s voice is friendly and direct, explanations are perfectly pitched for young children and the illustrations convey extra information.
A carefully-thought-out and very appealing information story book.
