A cold tale that warms the heart
Sophie Webb received a Sibert Honor in 2001 for her documentation of her time in Antarctica. This journal allows the readers to follow her journey to the cold continent, and read about her observations of the natives in the deep, deep South; the Adélie Penguins. She provides details about everything from the preparation to the living conditions. Reading her journal entries kept my entranced. She logs in every account of her two-month stay, as well as the love she felt for the penguins. The language is a little above the average elementary reading level--the illustrations and the vocabulary seem to contrast--but the book is a documentary in text.Was this review helpful?
