What's The Arctic Tern About

Publisher Summary

What is it like to be a bird that migrates the longest distance in the world among birds? This story aims to show the living of the Arctic tern, the bird that sees two different ends of the world - North and South Poles. Our small hero lives in Greenland, in his colony. Every year, he starts his journey to the south together with his family and friends, over and over again. How will this tiny bird cross the Atlantic ocean? “The tiny tern led the same life as other Arctic terns and had been part of this colony since he first saw sunlight. How beautiful he was! He had black stripes on his head, snowy-white feathers, and a beak as red as a tomato. His body was light as a feather and was easily carried by the ocean breeze. Flying was his true love. It filled him with the feeling of adventure.” Follow this brave bird on his amazing and beautiful trip to the other end of the world! This children’s picture book is good for nature and unit studies (especially about birds, migration, ocean, and geography overall) and storytimes both at home and in the classroom. It’s loved by toddlers, preschoolers, elementary-age kids, teachers, and families who enjoy nature, nature discoveries, and learning every day! Stunning illustrations and beautiful language grow a child’s literacy, a sense of beauty, and attention to detail. It is useful for families and teachers who practice Waldorf, Charlotte Mason, Reggio, Montessori Methods, and parents who homeschool kids.
