From the Back Cover:

``These beautiful and scientifically accurate books capture your imagination with the excitement of observing nature and learning to interpret what you see.''--Dr. Nancy B. Simmons, Assistant Curator, American Museum of Natural History. It's a land riddled with mysteries and puzzles. Where a winter night lasts three weeks. Where the ground is icy on the warmest of days. Where curtains of colored light hang in the winter sky, clinging to nothing at all. Beneath this magical heaven, bears and hares and howling wolves and hungry foxes roam the frozen earth, while ancient trees a century old strain to grow beyond a foot high. You may never visit this dangerously cold habitat. But now, with this activity-filled book, the strange and wonderful Arctic tundra is brrrrrrought to you--one small square at a time. Arctic Tundra is just one of the exciting, vibrantly illustrated volumes in the critically acclaimed One Small Square series of science and nature books for children ages 6 - 9.
