I really enjoyed this book. The illustrations in this book are bright, colorful, and engaging. The information in this book is fantastic for all members of the family. It is a great tool for starting or continuing a discussions about caring for our planet. Even as an adult I learned things I didn't know before. I think this is a book that can and should have a place on a family bookshelf for many years to come.
This book is great for students and children who are interested in learning more about global warming and the effects it is having on glaciers. I like that this book is a chapter book focusing on many aspects that will allow upper elementary readers not only to learn new information but practice the nonfiction skills they are taught in class. This book coming with beautiful illustrations that enhance the text.
This middle grade, nonfiction chapter book introduces students to the glaciers that are slowly disappearing. With tons of great information as well as very informative photographs and beautiful illustrations, this book will give young readers a peek at a very important part of our natural world that needs saving. From the science and history behind the glaciers, the impact of climate change on our collective future and actionable steps children and adults can do to make a difference. As a grade 3 teacher I could definitely see having this book in my classroom library. I think it is perfect for middle grade students to learn about the environment in a slightly longer text than the average non-fiction book usually written for this age group. I would recommend this book for families and teachers of children in the grade 2-7 age range. Thank you to Netgalley and he publisher for the opportunity to read and review this great book!
This book covers all the important aspects of global warming and the effect on glaciers. The information is thorough without being too overwhelming or above the heads of young readers. Would be appropriate for middle school grades. The illustrations are captivating and visually appealing and the book contains some interesting quotes and factoids pertaining to glaciers and global warming. It even includes some activism suggestions at the end. Nice addition to a library’s juvenile non-fiction collection.
