This book will let every child be astonished by the amazing world of the glaciers. It tells about the Ice Age a long time ago, how it has changed and why we will encounter another Ice Age in future. You get further interesting facts about icebergs which calved from glaciers and are now in the sea.
A very interesting book and it will probably raise the interest for the astonishing nature in our world even more. ( )

The book offers lots of information to the reader. It explains facts about glaviers which are true and reasonable. It goes far back in history and tells about the formation of glaciers and how they have changed with the time. It refers very often to the Titanic, which makes it even more interesting, as this is a very well-known fact. ( )
