My daughter has been studying both the Arctic and Antarctica at school recently, and I came across this brilliant book to help consolidate learning at home. It’s well-researched, beautifully illustrated and packed full of interesting info. It’s yet another superb book published by Quarto and to be honest, worth buying for the map endpapers alone!
I love the clever flip-book format: on opening the covers you are treated to stunning, portrait-oriented spreads that provide a real sense of scale, and once readers finish exploring one of the Poles, they just flip the book over and start again – brilliant ?. It contains all the information a UK Key Stage 2 (age 8 – 11) child needs and more and is perfect for any child who loves nature, geography, exploration or fact collecting. My kids have fought quite a few times over who gets to take this to bed, which is always a sign of a good book in our house.
