Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brr Bundle up, kids, you're about to depart on an incredible, icy expedition in The Field Guide to Polar Animals. In this clever book, kids will discover the 1920s journal of a fictional zoologist who traveled to the subarctic region and Antarctica. The journal is filled with observations about the animals he encounters on his journey to the ends of the earth. From polar bears to penguins, kids will learn all about wildlife in the planet's most extreme environments. Detailed illustrations, maps, photographs, and handwritten diary excerpts make readers feel as if they're part of the expedition. Kids can also create a 3-D polar scene with a full-color diorama and eight easy-to-assemble polar animals that come with the book. Very cool. The Field Guide series offers an exceptional experience to young pioneers who want to explore exotic places. As readers learn interesting facts about eight different animals, they can construct models of their furry and feathery friends to play with. Each book provides a beautifully illustrated diorama to use as a realistic backdrop for play.
