Who Lives on the Cold, Icy Tundra?
Who would want to live on the freezing polar tundra? Actually, plenty of animals and plants do. Full-color photographs present animals such as penguins, polar bears, and the arctic tern while the informative text supplies the facts about the animals that thrive in this frigid, seemingly unwelcoming habitat.
“The colorful and attractive layout of each volume emphasizes the interrelatedness of species within their environment...Sharp color photographs provide visual interest. Text is arranged in photo caption boxes or is well divided into frames spaced between the photographs in a visually pleasing array. Loads of information is packed into fairly short sentences, containing vocabulary that can easily be read by second and third graders.”
