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 artefacts, 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.
