Take a magical ride around the globe to see the wonders of a single moment in a story illuminating our precious and fragile natural world. Our planet is always turning. It may be midnight in London, but in different time zones other living things are waking up, ready to hunt or feed or fight. As the clock strikes twelve, two sisters are spirited away on a journey to glimpse, in the span of a moment, extraordinary biodiversity: a mother polar bear and her cubs hunting seals in Svalbard, tiny turtles in India following the moon toward the sea, and enormous whale sharks gulping plankton in the Philippines. Quietly profound, this glowing tribute to the natural world—and reminder of its fragility—blends accessible science, lyricism, sweeping artwork, and a call for climate awareness into an ideal companion book for Earth Day, or any wondrous day on Earth.

"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.

Glaciers have been around for a long time. Many formed at the end of the last ice age, about 20,000 years ago. Since then, they have shaped Earth's landscape, helped cool the planet, and provided living things with fresh water--all while weathering changes in Earth's climate. Studying glaciers can tell us a lot about how Earth's climate has shifted over time, how human activities are impacting the climate, and what might occur in the future. Packed with information, vibrant photos, and hands-on activities, this book helps students learn about glaciers, how they're changing, and what that might mean for the planet's future.
