Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
It is amazing which animals can survive bitter cold temperatures. This comparative guide begins with the Arctic bumblebee that lives in temperatures of 40 degrees Fahrenheit and moves down the thermometer to the Antarctic skua that steals eggs from other birds along the Antarctic coast and survives at 12 F to the familiar polar bear that can walk over ice in temperatures of minus 34 F and the Siberian husky that can withstand a climate below 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Each page features the animal in cool icy-toned watercolors with a prominent thermometer that shows the animals' survival temperature and plummets with each turn of the page. Ideally suited to the reading skills and interest levels of first readers, the books' attractive design is an attention getter. Turning the final page sideways, readers can view each animal on the thermometer and learn more facts about each one. The glossary and appended bibliography, index, and safe web sites are an added bonus. Whether used in the classroom or for individual browsing this book is a winner. Part of the "Animal Extremes" series. 2006, Picture Window Books, Ages 5 to 8.
