Glacier on the Move

West Margin Pr. Aug. 2019. 32p. further reading. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781513262307.
K-Gr 3–Travel with a glacier named Flo as it moves through different seasons and landscapes. We see what Flo does for the landscape and the things it leaves behind. We also get commentary and additional facts on glaciers from the ice worm, a delightful character along the edges of the page; ice worms can actually be found among glaciers. The end of the book includes information about climate change and information about real glaciers of the world, as well as a reference list and some more facts about ice worms. The language of the main story is simple, although the interjections of the ice worm are a little more complicated and use more scientific verbiage. The illustrations are absolutely charming; they project movement well and are surprisingly colorful for a subject that is mostly ice. Readers also see cute images of seals, birds, moose, bears, and deer.
VERDICT An adorable addition to any library’s picture book or science/STEM collection.
