These books are fun, light reads, perfect for students fascinated with the natural world. Corwin does a nice job of seamlessly integrating information about each of the environments the kids visit into the story, allowing the reader to experience the excitement of discovering things on one's own. The author's passion for the natural world shines through and urges the reader to a greater appreciation of the natural world.

I was a little disappointed that I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first book in the series. It was a good read with lots of educational facts, but something was lacking in the story line with Benjamin and Lucy. Maybe lack of dialog? These books are a good resource for kids interested in, or currently learning about, biology and ecosystems.

Benjamin and Lucy go to Alaska with their scientist parents to see how climate change has affected the state. Kids learn about the animals that they can find in Alaska. They also learn paying attention to the world around them and what happens in one side of the world affects the rest.

I learned some interesting scientific facts about Alaska.
Clean read (approved for Kuwait library unaltered).

I read this after spending 10 months in Alaska. I found it entertaining to hear the kids in the book experience things that I had also experienced.

This book was good, but I'd thought it was going to be better. Its reading level is 5.6, but it is written for the younger readers.
