Life on the Ice

Sure to motivate young explorers

–Children’s Literature





How does it feel to be near the North Pole when it’s so cold that a cup of hot water, thrown in the air, explodes into ice particles? What’s it like to be somewhere even colder—the South Pole, where a refrigerator containing fruits and vegetables has to be heated? Come explore these two places where few people have ever been.


Intermediate readers will delight in the information matched with actual photographs of the arctic environment, scientists, and wildlife. Unique features of life at the poles are included to tempt readers to continue exploring.  -A National Science Teachers Association Recommendation
