Zip up your jacket! Grab your binoculars! How to Survive in Antarctica is a cross between a survival guide and a travel guide for kids, giving lots of hands-on information about spending time on the ice continent.

Bledsoe includes lots of first hand stories about her own adventures, as well as short nuggets about the lives of people and other animals who live and work in Antarctica. Lots of photos!
