Children's Book Review and #Giveaway: The Glaciers Are Melting! (Ends 5/28) CLOSED

Saturday, May 14, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
Chicken Little may have thought the sky was falling but Peter Pika is sure the glaciers are melting and is off to talk to the Mountain Monarch about it. Joined along the way by friends Tammy Ptarmigan, Sally Squirrel, Mandy Marmot, and Harry Hare, they all wonder what will happen to them if the glaciers melt. Where will they live, how will they survive? When Wiley Wolverine tries to trick them, can the Mountain Monarch save them? More importantly, can the Mountain Monarch stop the glaciers from melting?

My Review
The Glaciers Are Melting! by Donna Love is yet another excellent book for kids from Sylvan Dell Publishing. It introduces several mountain animals who are worried about the glaciers melting. The finale of the story is open-ended to allow a discussion of glaciers and climate change among parents and kids. The book is beautifully illustrated by Shennen Bersani and features a section called For Creative Minds at the end. There kids can learn more about glaciers, water, animals and what people can do to slow down climate change.

Although The Glaciers Are Melting! is recommended for children 9-12, my younger kids love it. Caregivers can adapt the discussion of glaciers and climate to their young one's knowledge and understanding, and even a very young child would enjoy the beautiful pictures.
