Children's LiteratureStunning photographs of walls of ice, incredible waterfalls, mountain masses and clear blue water from around the globe highlight this fascinating, fact-filled book. Careful definitions, explanations and examples describe glaciers, how they are formed, how they move and how they impact our earth. Each new term (moraine, cirque, crevasses, to name a few) is well described and further explained through photos depicting real examples. The well-written text is easy for children to listen to, which will most likely promote a number of questions and discussions relating to science, geography and history. For young children, this is an alluring first look into the world of ice. Part of the "True Book" series, it is an excellent addition to any library. 2000, Children's Press, $22.00. Ages 6 to 10.

Glaciers based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
the cover does not draw anyone to grab the book; however, it is a good book for children to read. The book has a glossary for young readers to use. The book describes how glaciers are formed. There is even a reference to the the type of glacier the Titanic hit.
