Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 04/01/2013 Gr 3–5—Not every person working at an Antarctic research station is a scientist; there are plenty of opportunities for those willing to shovel snow or grow vegetables. Structured around places rather than professions, these titles briefly touch on the breadth of duties and positions necessary to keep things running in six dangerous locations. Though the chapters are just a few pages long, they contain enough fascinating facts to pull in readers, such as information about disposable clothing, rogue waves, helicopter commutes, and a building on skis. The energetic design and excellent captioned photographs transport students to the center of the action and convey the excitement of these challenging jobs. The informal tone covers serious material in an engrossing and easy-to-digest manner. Kids will be highly entertained by these overviews. Sure to spark interest and further investigation. - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
