In this book she explains HOW animals survive in such brutal temperatures For example she explains how a frog's liver produces lots of glucose that keep the insides of the frog's cells from crystalizing effectively making a frogsicle that will thaw in the spring Great winter read While the information in this book is accurate to my knowledge and interesting the lack of text features and uninspiring artwork make it a no go for me This is the kind of book that while very good for students is just not uite attractive or appealing enough for students to pour through Recommended as curricular support only This is one I'll skip for my elementary collection All I can say is that I am amazed amazed at all God's creatures being soooo vastly different and adaptable Amazed that our world is so diverse in its weather and habitat Amazed that my brother and his wife live somewhere that can be 93 in the summer and 70 in the winter Uncle John sent Seth this book but I had to read it first
