"At opposite ends of the Earth, the polar regions could not be farther apart. And yet the animals who live in the Arctic and Antarctica have a lot in common. They have adapted to live in the world's harshest environments, surviving extreme cold and continuous days of darkness. In this beautiful book, author L.E. Carmichael and illustrator Byron Eggenschwiler take readers on a journey to explore the animal adaptions that make life possible in these polar habitats. Readers will learn about a lynx's "snowshoe paws" that help it move across the Arctic snow, how a penguin "toboggans" over the ice to reach Antarctica's waters and so much more. But the planet is changing -- faster than scientists could have predicted. And the polar regions are warming faster than any other part of our planet.

Incredibly timely and relevant, Polar offers a glimpse into two of the most fascinating -- and rapidly changing -- places on Earth"--
