DO YOU KNOW? POLAR ANIMALS AND OTHER COLD-CLIMATE CREATURES
By: Pascale Hédelin
Illustrated by: Didier Balicevic, Maëlle Cheval, Yating Hung, Yi-Hsuan Wu

The popular Do You Know? series is back with everything you wanted to know about animals that live in the world’s coldest climates. This book looks at four sections of the world including the Frozen Lands of North America, Winter in the Boreal Forest, animals that live On the Ice and in the Water, and The Mountains in the Winter. While the North and South Poles are always cold, other areas are only cold during their winter months. So the animals have to be able to adapt to all temperatures or choose to leave or hibernate.
Kids will learn about caribou, arctic wolves and foxes, wolverines, moose, polar bears, walruses, penguins, and more. All of these animals have unique adaptations that allow them to live in the coldest temperatures. Even though most birds migrate south to warmer temperatures (which kids will learn about), there are a few that stay in the colder climates such as the snowy owl or ravens.
Each page includes a question about that area and a deeper dive into the answers. The pages include accurate (yet quite adorable) illustrations of people and animals with labels for every illustration. The end of each section includes a review game to check for learning.
Discover how certain animals protect themselves during a major blizzard. Learn about an ermine and why its tail has a black tip. Antarctica is the coldest place on the planet, yet people choose to spend time there. Find out why and many other things about the coldest places on earth in this book.
