Polar Lands, by Margaret Hynes, is a good choice to introduce more nonfiction in your young child’s library. Children can learn more about the polar lands and the animals who inhabit it. The animal photographs enhance the text and encourage discussion. Vocabulary words at the bottom of each page can be used to further language development. It’s fun for beginning readers to find the vocabulary words in the text above the definition. We also enjoyed the maps at the beginning. This is a book that we enjoy reading and viewing for more information. We hope you enjoy it!
