"Polar eyes will motivate kids to explore science by bringing Antarctica into the classroom, or the kitchen at home, with hands-on activities. These vary from the tempting, making an edible Antarctica, to the serious, surviving in a white out. Families can be kept busy building weather stations and mini biospheres, using household objects often thrown out for recycling"

"What's it like to sleep in an igloo? Where do penguins go to dance? Tanya Patrick travelled to the coldest, windiest and driest continent on Earth to find out, and all the answers can be found in her book Polar Eyes. It has amazing pictures, interviews with people who live there, stuff for you to do and heaps more!"
