OK I know these are supposed to be kid books but they are awesome! Great pictures and just enough text to make you want to learn more. Great choices for a beginning history reader or to start an older reader out in a new area. Every time I pick one of these up and read it I learn new things. Highly Recommended

It goes into some detail about the different animals including the different body parts and how they are used in the arctic and antarctic, what they eat, and their homes. It also goes into how humans live in these harsh environments.
So What:Students must know how animals and environments interact for survival.
