The Arctic Fox’s Journey (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1) (Paperback)
Read and find out about the arctic fox’s quest for survival in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.
During the winter, the arctic fox begins an incredible journey. She heads north through the tundra, toward the top of the world. No larger than a house cat, she faces treacherous obstacles, frightening predators, and bitter cold along the way.
