Life in a freezing-cold, icy Arctic is full of challenges, and the animals in this dramatic new series are built to survive its extremes. Each title focuses on one animal and explores how the animal is adapted for life in this polar region; what it eats; how it spends its days and nights; and how it raises its young. Vocabulary and content are expertly crafted to meet second-grade reading and science curriculum standards. Glossaries help build vocabulary, and bright, attractive photos will spark readers' curiosity about Arctic animals. Innovative, age-appropriate activities, critical-thinking questions, and easy-to-understand fact boxes keep the pages turning and the pace lively and interactive.

Arctic Animals

The text flows smoothly in these strong introductions, which cover the requisite animal information: location, habitat, physical characteristics, diet, seasonal changes, and reproduction and life cycle. Many pieces of data are framed according to young readers’ life experiences (“Hold a quarter in your hand. The coin weighs just a little more than a baby lemming!”). Another stand-out feature is the use of anticipatory questions that neatly lead readers from one chapter to the next. Simple math and visual literacy activities use or extend the material just presented. The titles culminate in a “Science Lab,” which varies from book to book (a science experiment, designing a poster, a compare and contrast). Dynamic photos hold their own, supporting the text beautifully. A visual dictionary of six words finishes these off nicely. VERDICT: These books will be a hit among students seeking informational texts and those looking for recreational reading.
