Ice: Chilling Stories from a Disappearing World by DK Publishing is a book I requested from NetGalley and the review is voluntary. This book is hot, or COOL! Really cool in fact! It takes the reader from prehistoric times to today and from pole to pile exploding everything ice! They explore everything that has lived in ice, grew on ice, walked on ice, lived under ice, well...you get my meaning. The pictures are totally amazing! Some seem to be alive! That's what caught my attention is the fabulo ...more

The title, really, says it all. The ice that has been at the arctic and antarctic are vanishing in our lifetimes, and taking with it stories, and wildlife, and a way of life for people.

This is an amazing book showing that has gone before, in pre-historic times, as well as what is currently vanishing. Large pictures, with notes on each item in the picture make this an easy and informative read.

It turns out, there is quite a lot to be learned. Who knew, for example, that there are different types

A small but well organized and explain documentary on ice. It covers the basics information on what is ice, the ice age, animal living in an ice/snowy world, how humans live there too, etc. Lot of information, all easy to understand do to summarize content and vocabulary. There is also good quality picture to help represent it all in our mind. Well done!

I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

Ice is the latest nonfiction title from DK Publishing. I was especially excited about the opportunity to review this book because my students have recently been reaching for the older DK books available in our school library. The modern look of the cover will certainly entice students to pick this book up. The table of contents is divided into "Prehistory", "The Frozen World", "Animals on Ice", and "Humans on Ice" which includes a variety of information including ice ages, evolution, habitats, e ...more

Most excellent: every since I learned there were at least 9 kinds of ice- this was in class in college in the 70's- I have been fascinated with ice.

This is a lovely compendium about ice, how it is formed, what it can, and can't do. Ice has been a larger and smaller part of Earth since it formed, and its future may be in jeopardy in ways we can't imagine.

Short, sweet, to the point, excellent. thank you

With all the discussion happening now about climate change, this book is very timely. Though it is geared toward children, there is a lot of information that would benefit adults. Be a very good reference book for use in classroom assignments. Love the clarity of the graphics but especially the details, e.g. Emperor Penguin can grow to be 4 feet tall. That means this penguin would be up to my waist... wow! Another great nonfiction book by DK Publishing.

"Ice" by DK is a fascinating read on prehistorical ice ages and then present day and the effect of global warming on the ice landscapes around the world. The book details various areas around the world where the ice is a dominant feature and how it affects the habitats of the plants and animals living in the ice.

Overall, the book tells a dismal story of the world we live in and the effects of the rapidly changing ice landscape around us.
