Kindergarten-Grade 3-A lovely natural history title. Exceptionally clear, full-color photos show the eerie beauty of the Arctic wilderness and its inhabitants. The spare, lyrical text is accessible to very young audiences, and the appendix giving scientific names and detailing habits of the animals depicted makes the book suitable for primary graders. A short list of environmental groups working to save the region is appended. Alexandra Siy's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (Dillon, 1991) is more informative and Bobbie Kalman's Arctic Animals (Crabtree, 1988) covers a larger geographic area and many of the same animals for slightly older students. An attractive additional purchase.

Ages 5-7. This photo-essay about the seasons in the arctic and the life cycle of arctic animals has much to recommend it--high-quality color reproductions, an accessible, narrative text, and an attractive layout--and Pandell's simple, descriptive text does justice to the evocative visual images. But subtitle aside, there is no specific information about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and the absence of maps, descriptive information, and history about the refuge is a serious flaw. Pandell does, however, include some additional information on the animals she mentions in the text, as well as an environmental note with a list of agencies that are working to protect the area from destructive development.
