Quietly it comes—the dark and chill of winter. And in the snow-covered fields and forests, the great northern plains, vast stretches of frozen tundra, and icy polar regions, wild animals have to survive day after day, night after night, out in the cold. How do they do it? Kids can bundle up and join award-winning author, illustrator, and naturalist Jim Arnosky as he follows the tracks of otters, beavers, moose, polar bears, killer whales, penguins, fur seals, and other creatures to discover more about their lives during this frigid season. Arnosky's stunning art includes five magnificent foldouts that reveal worlds under the ice and at the farthest, frostiest reaches of the globe.
Our Thoughts: First off, this topic was a very popular one in our house. One of my 8 year old sons did a big study of the Artic at the end of the last school year so he was so excited to learn more about these animals. My other two kiddos have enjoyed the book just as much too. It is always nice when you find a book that appeals to all your little ones!
Frozen Wild offers insight into the lives of some of kids favorite animals with lots of interesting facts about habitat, eating habits, appearance as well as just how they can survive (and thrive) in the harsh environments they call home. My kids soaked in all the facts as well as thoroughly enjoyed the illustrations and diagrams. The foldout sections are particularly well done with lots of information and pictures.
My son has asked me to pick up a copy of this book to gift his teacher from last year. When I suggested to him that we give our own copy to her when we are finished he informed me that we would never be finished with our copy. I think that about sums up how much my crew enjoyed the book!
