Review Highlights:

This highly interactive book is an excellent research tool that brings the topic of glaciers—the sculptors of geography and preservers of history—to life.

Glaciers is filled with pictures, interactive maps, historical timelines, and videos. The instant glossary for specific clickable words and their definitions is a handy feature. The glacial views using google maps is definitely worth your time. I also appreciated the interactive quiz at the end. This is a wonderful tool for teachers and students.
