" Unlike Seymour's "Mountains" book, this book was more challenging for my 7-year-old. Lovely photographs, but the text was very in depth. This book is better suited for upper elementary-aged students. " said.

" This book had a lot of information, but it wasn't overwhelming. It was easy to read for kids and had great pictures throughout the book. " said.

" Great basic information about icebergs and glaciers. Well supported with quality photographs throughout the book. " said.

" This is an excellent book to use for a science lesson. A lot of great information and facts about ice, icebergs, and glaciers. It can also tie into the history of the student's state and geographical features. " said.

" The page-sized colorful photographs of glaciers, rivers, and mountains give me reason to include this book in a lesson plan for art studies. The science facts and questions included in this book about glaciers, polar ice caps, icebergs and how the world has changed because of those influences would make this book an engaging read-aloud in science lesson plans. This book is good for introducing the concept of glaciers and exploring glaciers in more depth: grades 1 - 5, " said.

"As with all Seymour's books the highlight of this book is the awesome photography. Each page has huge, beautiful photographs; some close-ups, some taken at strange angles, all with an artist flare to accentuate the beauty and wonder of the topic. The text is written in large bold text so as not to intimidate young readers, though the text itself is not simple. Told in a straight-forward, matter of fact voice, the writing is not entirely engaging yet does not become dry. Fortunately the photographs keep the reader stimulated." said.

" Though young readers might be the target audience, anyone of any age can learn amazing details about icebergs and glaciers after reading this book. Simon does an excellent job of making the information both understandable and interesting. He covers what an iceberg is and then proceeds to tell of their effects on the world's landscape, and then touches on the effects of climate change. The accompanying photos give a great visual to the information and enhance the reading experience. Superb! " said.

" Simon’s writing is beautiful in this photoessay, but there are several missed opportunities. Most photos do not have captions or dates. In some places the text clarifies, but in others the reader must guess. No sources are listed and the author note does not explain how this was updated in 2018. " said.
