Just how cold is too cold for recess in Alaska? Answer: if it's colder than 20 below zero. And how cold is 20 below? Cold enough for your nose to dry out, your tongue to freeze on metal, and your breath to collect and freeze on your eyelashes and hair. Humorous photos tell the story; the straightforward text misses no interesting detail.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Through minimal text, a girl describes dressing for and enjoying recess in Alaska, even when "it is 20 degrees below zero." Colorful, clear photographs, many framed against pastel backgrounds imprinted with snowflakes, show the various items of clothing the children put on and their playground activities, such as sledding, making forts, and playing soccer or football. Telling pictures feature frozen eyelashes, hair, and eyebrows, as well as the mounds of clothing when recess is over. The only thing that stops these students from going outside for a break from their studies is a temperature lower than 20 below or a random moose.-Cassandra A. Lopez, Northfield Elementary School, Ellicott City, MD Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
