Description

A Children's Guide to Arctic Birds is a 32-page illustrated information book about 12 migratory and non-migratory Arctic birds. The 12 birds are: the Thick-Billed Murre, Arctic Tern, Red Phalarope, Common Eider, Long-Tailed Duck, Tundra Swan, Gyrfalcon, Snowy Owl, Common Raven, Rock Ptarmigan, Red-Throated Loon and Snow Bunting. In this appealing book, the author includes basic information about each bird including its length in metric measurement, feathers, colour, texture, habitat, food, bird's call, nest, eggs, and the bird's English and Inuktitut names. Illustrator Danny Christopher supplies the colour illustrations and black silhouettes of each of the birds under study. Ecologist Mia Pelletier, a Baffin Island resident who works with Inuit to manage Arctic seabirds in protected areas offers a unique introduction for elementary students to learn more about 12 of the 200 birds that live in the Arctic. An excellent introducation.
