"Out of a score of 10, this book earns a 9.99. To describe this book in just one word--amazing."
-- Yes Magazine
The second of eight books in the Fifth House Going Wild children's nonfiction adventure series, Amazing Animal Adventures at the Poles presents world-famous naturalist Brian Keating's amazing-but-true firsthand accounts of his travels in the world's remote polar regions. Seemingly devoid at first glance of all but the most basic of flora and fauna, the Arctic and Antarctic lands and waters are actually full of exciting natural wonders and fascinating creatures that must be seen to be believed!
Join Brian Keating as he describes:
Each story, told by Keating with boundless energy and enthusiasm, provides details in easily digestible bites and features full-colour photographs with fact-filled cutlines, a small glossary, and an information sidebar - "Brian's Notes." Also included in the book are an activity to encourage students to have their own backyard adventures, a full-colour world map showing the locations of Keating's wildlife adventures, and an index.
Teacher's Guides are available at Fitzhenry.ca
