Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
With the familiar Cat in the Hat and Seuss-like rhymes, early readers can learn facts about the North and South Poles. The inviting cover sparkles like ice. Although the text states that the North Pole has no land under it, the illustration of summer seems to show some, and the accompanying text reads: "Berries and mosses and all kinds of flowers, when temperatures rise, are sprouting in hours." The reason for seasonal change is explained as: "Earth spins on its axis while circling the sun. It takes a full year till this orbit is done." Additional facts are provided throughout the book, including that native people today live in houses, have color TVs, and use snowmobiles. Animals keep warm with blubber, feathers and special fur, such as the polar bear's hollow fur hairs. At the South Pole, the temperature can sink to 130 degrees below zero. Various kinds of penguins eat krill and raise chicks by huddling together for warmth. Scientists study the animals, climate change, and more in these hostile regions. A glossary, a reading list, and an index are included. This is part of "The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library" series. Kids will enjoy the rhymes while learning some facts about the poles.
