Description

Children have always been fascinated by the immensity of the North Pole. Seen as a mysterious world, it raises many questions: How does an ice floe form? Do Inuits always live in igoos? What animals live there? This book addresses all these questions. Concentrating on nature, fauna, people, science and global warming, "Wonders of the North Pole" looks at the extreme temperatures of the North Pole, the formation of icebergs, the polar nights and arctic summers. We see the animals that live here: the seal, the bear and the whale and the way of life of the Inuits and the people of Siberia and Lapland. The book also discusses global warming and the dangers it represents for this part of the world. Through pictures, illustrations and texts, children are introduced to this territory of extremes.
