“This book was our favorite! Each page contains icons you can click on and be taken to additional content. Some fun activities included discovering the world of polar bears, multiple interactive worksheets to complete, watching slideshows and videos, and even completing a glacier quiz. The book included hands-on activities to try as well. This is a wonderful addition to your science study! (Lightbox, Glaciers)”
