K-Gr 3-A brief overview of "one of the chilliest places on Earth." The chapters on animals are organized by land, sea, and air, and the book culminates with a section on springtime in the Arctic. The information about each creature includes the term for its young, size at birth and full grown, food, and enemies. The polar bear, arctic fox, arctic hare, muskox, arctic wolf, ringed seal, walrus, beluga whale, ptarmigan, snowy owl, gyrfalcon, caribou, and arctic tern are all introduced. The book does not include a table of contents, index, or glossary, which makes it difficult to use for reports, but beginning readers will enjoy reading it in its entirety or browsing to identify specific animals. The open format includes a few short sentences per page and softly colored illustrations of the animals in their natural habitat. An appropriate purchase for those looking for easy-to-read animal titles or books on the far North.-Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
