Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Natalie Gurr
Welcome to Antarctica! This icy continent is home to many unique animals including seals, penguins and killer whales. Not many people live in Antarctica. Most are scientists that come to study the continent and learn about climate change. Adventurers travel to the continent to experience chilly living conditions, see the animals and some even try skiing. Simple text and phrasing makes this informational text perfect for beginning readers. Print is large and juxtaposed next to full page pictures that bring the text to life. Captions provide simple details about each picture. Book includes a table of contents, headings, index and words-to-know. Part of the “Rookie Read-About Geography” series, which covers each of the seven continents. Engaging text teaches children about climates, populations, animals and where to find each continent on the map. Great series for introducing children to non-fiction texts and for helping them learn about the world they live in. Reviewer: Natalie Gurr AGERANGE: Ages 5 to 8.
