School Library Journal - 09/01/2015 K-Gr 2—In the most recent addition to this series, the husband-and-wife team cover the Arctic and Antarctica. The author's experience as an elementary teacher is evident in her ability to explain complex topics in simple but never condescending text. The verso features a fairly general explanatory statement, while the recto contains a beautifully painted watercolor, labeled with the name of the plant or animal species depicted. The book opens with a map, while the back matter includes more in-depth information about the flora and fauna portrayed. VERDICT A solid read-aloud to introduce young children to this area of the world.—Maggie Chase, Boise State University, ID - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
