When you live in the Arctic in winter, everything is a shade of white.

A young girl looks around her home in the Arctic and sees only white, white, white…but one day her grandfather takes her on a journey through the tundra.  And at the end of their cold walk across the ice, they find something special that brings color into their world.

“While this book easily fulfills core curriculum standards in literacy, geography, and science; the art teacher might get the most mileage from it.  Surely the children can produce wonderful colors from any part of the world to decorate their winter hallways.”
