Booklist
“This appealing series title explores the most recent Ice Age, beginning with where the ice came from and continuing to the end of the Ice Age. . . Particularly fun are the factual errors revealed in the movie Ice Age. Included are a time line, glossary, resources, essential questions, and examples of Ice Age sites around the U.S. Great for browsing, but even better for STEM programming in classroom, library, and after-school settings.”

Alexander K. Hastings, Assistant Curator of Paleontology, Virginia Museum of Natural History
"The book really makes learning about the Ice Age and the world around us a lot of fun. The book even brings in the real science that tied in with a few memorable moments from the popular Ice Age movie franchise."
