Fast, fun facts, light, informative text, and colorful images bring polar animals to life for kids ages 7-10.
Antarctica and the Arctic are the coldest places on earth. But believe it or not, life thrives on both ends of our planet. In the polar lands, you'll find
-- whales as tall as two-story buildings,
-- bears that can swim 62 miles an hour without stopping, &
-- seals that can blow big red balloons on the tops of their heads.
Penguins Swim But Don't Get Wet is your ticket to the ends of the earth!
Melvin and Gilda Berger are the authors of the bestselling and critically acclaimed Scholastic Q&A series, among many other books for children.

*Starred Review* Gr. 2-5. The facts are amazing and entertaining in this title in the Speedy Facts series, and a wealth of information is presented with clarity and excitement in pages that are packed with color photos and lots of boxed facts. Browsers will pick up many dramatic bits and pieces ("Some seals in the Arctic can dive down nearly 1 mile and hold their breath for more than an hour"), but, unlike some books with a similar magazine-type format, the design here is not scattered. Each double-page spread concentrates on one subject, and the numbered facts are accurate, connected, and readable, whether the subject is the charging musk ox or the behavior of the polar bear. In a chatty but never overly cute style, the Bergers show the wonder of zoology. The lively presentation will turn kids on to science and make them aware of animal conservation issues. Elementary school teachers will want this, too. Hazel Rochman
