POLAR ANIMALS (ULTIMATE SPOTLIGHT), by Sandra Laboucarie and Da-fanny, Twirl, Aug. 24, 2021, Hardcover, $16.99 (ages 3-6)
Introduce young readers to the animals who know just how to survive in the cold in Polar Animals, written by Sandra Laboucarie and illustrated by Da-fanny.
Polar bears, penguins, Arctic foxes, seals, and many more polar animals withstand the extreme weather conditions in the Arctic Circle and Antarctica. Turn the wheel so penguins can dive into the water, pull the tab to see water spouting out from the blowhole of a whale, and open the big flaps to discover what the creatures look like in summer, the shortest season in the polar regions. —Synopsis provided by Twirl
Polar Animals is a fun, interactive book that will appeal to animal lovers and budding scientists alike. A bunch of facts accompany each animal along with some kind of pop-up, wheel, pull-tab, etc. The book begins with Antarctica and moves to the Arctic. It would be nice if the transition from the South Pole to the North Pole was clearer. Still, little ones will enjoy this book’s charming illustrations and tactile elements.
