Review: The Glaciers are Melting by: Donna Love

Chicken Little may have thought the sky was falling but Peter Pika is sure the glaciers are melting and is off to talk to the Mountain Monarch about it. Joined along the way by friends Tammy Ptarmigan, Sally Squirrel, Mandy Marmot, and Harry Hare, they all wonder what will happen to them if the glaciers melt. Where will they live, how will they survive? When Wiley Wolverine tries to trick them, can the Mountain Monarch save them? More importantly, can the Mountain Monarch stop the glaciers from melting? 4-6 pg For Creative Minds educational section in the back
40-60 pg cross-curricular Teaching Activities and 3 Interactive Quizzes available free on the book's homepage
eBooks with Auto-Flip, Auto-Read and selectable English and Spanish text and audio.

We picked this book up from K's school library.
Really cute book the pictures are fun to look at and it was fun repeating what each animal said to the other animals about the glaciers melting. We laughed when Wiley Wolverine tried to trick all the animals because everyone knows what Wolverines like to eat. It was guessing game as well trying to figure out who the Mountain Monarch was. 
Now I know most people would think by the title this is going to talk about the global warming. But no this is a story that tells in a way of how the Earth affects those around. Especially the animals in this story that live around the glacier. This is a good book to read to young kids. I think they would enjoy the repetitiveness and the colorful pictures.
