ALA Booklist
Continents and countries are a mainstay of elementary- and middle-school reports, and these entries in the Earth's Continents series (7 titles) offer the usual fare ographic features, history, states or provinces, etc. ong with some intriguing contemporary topics, unusual facts, and plenty of helpful context. Antarctica covers the southernmost continent's climate; its multinational status; the contested history of who set foot on it first what it's like to live there and some of its wildlife, such as its largest terrestrial creature, the quarter-inch-long Antarctic midge. A sidebar about the slim number of people born in Antarctica (the first in 1978) is particularly fascinating. Each volume is heavily illustrated with captioned photos and closes with the usual back matter, along with a recipe and an activity. Although broad in overall scope, these introductions to continents offer enough pithy, interest-piquing facts to encourage further, deeper research elsewhere.
