Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Part of a series, this volume explores the changes across the seasons in one small square of the arctic. In contrast to other books in this series, this ecological niche is one most children are unlikely to experience firsthand. It is brought to life through colorful drawings, clear descriptions, and recommendations for simple experiments such as building an edible model of permafrost. A key in the back identifies all plants and animals depicted throughout. Also in the series are African Savana, Backyard, Cave, Pond, Seashore, and Woods.
