Arctic Hares - Therese Shea
ISBN: 1433943131
Publication Date: 2010-08-01
Arctic hares are specially suited for life in the snowy, icy Arctic. Their fur matches the tundra terrain so they are not easily spotted. When they do need to run, they use their long hind legs to bound across land at high speeds. They have also been spotted standing on two legs to "box" each other. This captivating book shows these furry creatures using their adaptations to survive in one of the coldest and harshest places on Earth. Fun fact boxes support the main narrative.

Arctic foxes are one of the sneakiest tundra animals. Their fur blends in with the Arctic landscape year-round, allowing them to sneak up on their prey as well as trail polar bears to snag their leftovers. Arctic foxes have many other adaptations to the cold, including thick fur, a bushy tail, and the ability to burrow underground. This winsome book exposes these clever creatures in their tundra home.
