Our climate is changing rapidly and with unexpected consequences comes unexpected knowledge, too.
Kids will be held rapt by award-winning Claire Eamer’s descriptions of millennia-old secrets unveiled
by the melting of our ice. From traces of unknown plants to fascinating artifacts, these discoveries have
created a brand-new scientific field called glacier archaeology. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Suneby shares how
children can unveil their own talents in our evolving environment through the story of Iqbal: a keen
young scientist who creates a solar-powered stove to help his family. With striking visuals, these authors
make curiosity about our world and ourselves contagious.
