From School Library Journal
Grade 4-6 A well-written account of the history, geography, climate and wildlife of Antarctica. The book has an attractive format with colorful photographs. Soule's text compares favorably with Ronald Seth's Let's Visit Antarctica (Burke, 1983) and would be a good replacement for J. B. Icenhower's The First Book of Antarctica (Watts, 1956; o.p.). For younger readers, either Lynn M. Stone's Antarctica (Watts, 1985) or Keith Lye's Take a Trip to Antarctica (Watts, 1984) are also needed to round out the collection. Eunice Weech, M.L.
