Children's Literature - Debbie Levy
This visually appealing paperback introduces younger readers to life in the Arctic and Antarctic. Beginning with the geography and meteorology of the two poles, Hynes discusses snow, icebergs, tundra, endless winter nights, and summer days when the sun never sets. The ways in which animals have adapted to freezing temperatures are discussed and illustrated. Some examples may be familiar, such as birds that grow thick white feathers in the winter, but others are likely to surprise readers, such as a fish that can survive in water that would freeze other fish solid, thanks to special "antifreeze" chemicals in its body. In simple yet vivid language, Hynes covers a wide variety of animals, from polar bears to sea spiders. Similarly, she ranges in topics from the arctic food chain. to the Inuit people, to polar exploration and scientific research. Colorful photographs and illustrations, and a pleasing overall design, make this book an attractive package. The topic of global warming and its effect on species such as penguins and polar bears is not broached, however, which is an unfortunate omission. Part of the "Science Kids" series, and first published in hardcover in 2005 as part of Kingfisher's "Young Knowledge" set, this book also includes four fun projects suitable for younger students.
