    5. Oh, I liked this one The paintings are beautiful cool colors that almost help you to hear the quiet Then interesting facts about the animals and the adaptations that help them to survive in this frigid climate I need to order this one pronto Even though it s cooled off some here in Texas anything that will help our kiddos understand places that are very different is a good thing Might help inspire them to take better care of the planet.

    6. While the information in this book is accurate to my knowledge and interesting, the lack of text features and uninspiring artwork make it a no go for me This is the kind of book that, while very good for students, is just not quite attractive or appealing enough for students to pour through Recommended as curricular support only This is one I ll skip for my elementary collection.

    8. Can I just say again, that I really like this author In this book she explains HOW animals survive in such brutal temperatures For example, she explains how a frog s liver produces lots of glucose that keep the insides of the frog s cells from crystalizing, effectively making a frogsicle that will thaw in the spring Great winter read.
