Careers in the Frozen Antarctic

Series: Wild Science Careers

By Sara L. Latta

Imagine a place where summer reaches only 36ºF. at most, and where the sun does not set.

"Text is engagingly written and informative without being overly dense."

Seattle Public Schools, April 14, 2009

"Engaging, informative, and useful, even students not interested in the sciences will find something to interest them here."

Library Media Connection, May/June 2009

"This is one of the few books I've ever reviewed that I couldn't put down. The book explores different careers in the Antarctic using examples of real scientists in the field . . . The reading flows so easily that younger students with an interest in science would enjoy the book as well. I highly recommend this book for students who want to explore scientific fields as well as increase their knowledge of extreme environments on Earth. It would also make a great read aloud for younger children to stimulate their interest in science."

National Science Teachers Association Recommends Web site, posted March 19, 2009

"Good non-fiction resource for students doing career research or very interested in Antarctic climates."

Arlington Independent School District, October 26, 2009

"The books' greatest strength is in the variety of first-hand accounts and the scientists' breadth of experience. Both books have appealing color photographs and an attractive design that will appeal to general readers as well as to those interested in pursuing these exciting careers."

School Library Journal, August 2009

"A must for middle and high school libraries where cross curricular units in science, social studies, and career development classes are taught."
