Describes glaciers - how they are formed, how they evolve, where they are found, and how they are affected by global warming.

With serene panoramas counterpointing the earth-shredding accounts of how glaciers can carve away mountains into pebbles, this entry in the Water Science series will have young researchers looking at ice with a new set of eyes. At a quick clip, the book advances a fair, if somewhat superficial, amount of technical information about the different kinds of glaciers, how they are formed and evolve, where they might be found, and even some “Eco Notes” on the dangers of global warming and retreating glaciers. Diagrams, photos, a map of significant glaciers, and a time line of glacier movement complement short, declarative sentences that will be good for weaker readers but may frustrate stronger ones with some vagaries and repetition (“Sometimes, glaciers gouge valleys near coastlines. Some valley glaciers reach coasts”). A part of the publisher’s AV2 imprint, the book is enhanced with online supplements ranging from videos to mini quizzes to additional Web resources, making it a nice choice for multiplatform curriculum use. Grades 3-5. --Ian Chipman
