When separated from his fellow scientists on the ice in the Arctic, Joe must learn how to survive in the harsh climate. Joe builds an igloo, goes ice fishing, and makes a few animal friends in this engaging title. From School Library Journal: Gr 3–5—A cartoon character named Joe introduces each of these survival books, discussing how he managed to endure being swept away at sea or lost in the rainforest, all through his scientific know-how. Sidebars briefly discuss Joe's journey and how he became endangered, while the accompanying spreads discuss what he saw (animals at sea, such as sharks and humpback whales) and what put him in danger (a hurricane). The books breakdown the science, discussing where waves come from and why the sea is salty. Students looking for genuine survival tales, replete with tips, may long for books with a bit more danger, but there is some solid science on offer, presented through a fairly creative lens. "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

This fascinating book describes the geological makeup and history of the Atacama Desert in Chile. One of the driest areas of the worldsome parts never receive any rainthe desert's climate can be cold, sometimes producing snow and fog. Readers will be fascinated to learn that the Atacama's soil is so similar to soil samples from Mars that NASA goes to this desert to test its exploration instruments. NASA has also set up its Earth-Mars Cave Detection Program in the Atacama, too. Special sections also describe the desert's natural resources and unique problems facing this region, as well as the people, plants, and animals that inhabit this desert habitat. From School Library Journal: Gr 3-7-These books are clearly written, comprehensive, and ideal for reports. Each one opens with a map showing the area covered by the desert and concludes with a map of the world's deserts. The maps and full-color photos enhance the texts and have informative captions. Readers will enjoy learning about the various animals that live in these unusual climates. For example, in the Kalahari Desert, springbok typically graze at night, but if they "do feed during the daytime, they face away from the sun. Doing so allows their white bottoms to reflect the heat." Additional subjects include the history and current status of human inhabitants, plant life, the terrain, natural resources, and ways the desert may be at risk. The concisely written texts will be valuable to report writers.-Stephanie Farnlacher, Trace Crossings Elementary School, Hoover, ALα(c) Copyright 2011.
