What a marvelous book to help each learn much about the polar regions and all that is contained therein. It even has glossary, resources, and things that any of us can do to help preserve this amazing habitat.
The beautiful artistry of Byron Eggenschwiler makes it more real and for us to have more appreciation of all of the wildlife that many of us will never be able to visit.
I loved it and so will my family.
Well suited for reading WITH someone of any age including ESL, and great for gifting to anyone, but especially to any school or your public library!
I requested and received a free temporary e-book on Adobe Digital Editions from Kids Can Press via NetGalley. Thank you!

Calling this a beautiful book would be an understatement. It's rich in illustrations as well as information. I'm 72 and a retired librarian, but was surprised at how many facts in the text I didn't know. This is a gem and deserves a place in many school and public libraries.

I got this book through Netgalley for reviewing, and boy am I happy I did.

[b:Fox Talk|131591|Talking to the Dead Kate and Maggie Fox and the Rise of Spiritualism|Barbara Weisberg||126735] is a fantastic children's book that delves into the topic of domestication in a way that is easy for anyone to understand. They actually talk about the Russian Fox Experiment, how domestication affects not only behavior but actual genetics, and how you can assess these facts and animal intelligence for yourself.

The topic, while complex, is laid out very well and further resources are also offered throughout the book. The nature of exotic pet ownership is examined in a respectful way that acknowledges both the pros and cons and explains just why legality can come into question.

This is a book that I look forward to using someday for my own educational outreach, and is definitely one that I'll refer many people to while I work in the exotic animal field.

Five stars, no question. I'm so glad that this book came my way. :)
