Editorial Reviews

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

The whoosh of a sled pulled by reindeer sliced through the stillness of a snowy plain in Siberia. It was May. The tundra was still frozen, but in a few weeks it would begin to thaw. Yuri Khudi and his sons glided along the bank of the Yuribey River. They were taking advantage of the good weather to do some hunting. Perhaps they would spot a game bird or other small animal that would add some variety to a diet of fish and occasional reindeer meat eaten by the Nenets people, who have herded reindeer in Siberia for more than 800 years. The last thing Yuri expected on this outing was that he would make an important scientific discovery.
 
From a distance, it looked like a dead reindeer lying on a sandbar along the river channel. As Yuri drew closer, however, he thought it looked more like a baby elephant. How could that be? The nearest elephants lived thousands of miles away.
 
As Yuri and his sons stood around the little body lying on the sandbar, they were shocked by what they had found: a perfectly preserved baby woolly mammoth. It was frozen solid.
 
These animals disappeared from this part of the world about 11,000 years ago, but mammoth bones and tusks are a relatively common find in Siberia. It’s so cold in this Arctic region of Russia that the frozen soil, called permafrost, has acted as a giant freezer, preserving the carcasses of many animals that lived there long ago. As the top layer of permafrost begins to thaw in the spring, the bony remains of mammoths often appear as if they have burst from the frozen ground. But Yuri and his sons had never seen anything like this before—a baby woolly mammoth with all of its flesh in place. It looked like it could have died yesterday. They didn’t dare touch it.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After watching the program,"Waking the Baby Mammoth" on Nat Geographic tv, I bought copies of this book for each of my grandchildren (ages 4-10).
They watched the program and they all love the book.
They were saddened by the description of the baby's death.
If you have very young ones, you might not want to read that part to them. I guess it all depends on how you discuss death in your family. We have lots of fossils and "my kids" know they were once living animals.
These are photos of a dead animal and some sensitive children might be upset by them.
Overall, this is a wonderful book and makes a great gift for a budding Paleontologist or Archaeologist.

This book was purchased for a school assignment. We actually had a list of several books to choose from and I did buy four from Amazon. When our son saw this book, there was no contest. "Baby Mammoth Mummy, Frozen in Time", is in depth, informative, simply worded, and beautifully photographed. I would buy this book again in a heartbeat. It is one you will keep on your bookshelf and refer to, again and again.

This is an excellent book! I bought this as a Christmas gift and enjoyed it with my granddaughter when I visited in the summer. It is not for early readers and the child must have shown interest in paleontology before I would purchase this particular book. The reading is historical and scientific, therefore vocabulary becomes a major training tool with this book!
