This is a delightful bookk about school recess in Alaska. In my home town we stop going out for recess at +10. But in Alaska I'm afraid they'd never get outside if they waited for such a heatwave of occur. With only a few hour of almost daylight and a few wild animals roaming around recess becomes a challenge. The kids are still kids needing fresh air and some unstuctured physical activity so out they go until the temperature hits 20 below. The pictures are actual photos of the children who attend the school where the author teaches. I would recommend this book for any child between the ages of 5 and 10 (ages that still have school recess). I read it to my 1st graders every year and my friend and colleague reads it to her 4th graders every year. Both classes love it and ask to have it repeated - especially during indoor recess on our "super cold days" of 15 below.
