What's Arctic White About

Publisher Summary

When you live in the arctic in winter, everything is a shade of white. A young girl looks around her home in the arctic and sees only white, white, white . . . but one day her grandfather takes her out on a journey across the tundra. And at the end of their cold walk, the dark opens up to show the Northern Lights dancing across the sky–blue, green, and purple.

5.5 / 7.0

The premise is simple but original and engaging; the artwork is stunning; the text is brief and lovely. While this is definitely a story, not a non-fiction book, it would work well as a piece of or an introduction to a lesson about the Arctic region or the Northern Lights. It is a joy to read and one I’m happy to read over and over.
