About this Title
Abandon Ship!
Life on the Ice
Salariya Book Company
Elephant Island

Top right, January is midsummer in Antarctica. It is light for 24 hours a day. Everyone works long hours and forgets to go to bed, so you all get very tired.

Above, the months pass, and winter arrives. In May, the sun disappears below the horizon, and for the next four months there is continual darkness. You break up the long, dark days by racing the dogs in the moonlight.

March to Safety


HANDY HINT

To prevent boredom, set up goalposts on the ice and play soccer. It’s hard to keep on your feet!
Based on the book You Wouldn't Want to Be a Polar Explorer!
