KFYK - Kingfisher Young Knowledge is a science-based, highly visual, inspirational learning experience. Lively, engaging text explains the basics of a favourite subject, zooming in on intriguing aspects illustrated with stunning full-colour photographs. Project spreads featuring activities to do at home or when out and about, encourage hands-on involvement and understanding. KFYK Polar Lands introduces readers to some of the most remarkable places on earth - the poles. Children will meet the people who live in the lands inside the Arctic Circle and the scientists who work in Antarctica. They will discover the incredible diversity of animal and plant life at both poles: the polar bears, caribou, Arctic birds and Antarctic penguins, seals and whales. They can marvel at polar light shows (auroras), the brief flowering of the tundra and awesome icebergs, and find out why it is midnight for six months and why it is so important that we take care to conserve the unique environments of the poles.
