In 2001, biologist Karsten Heuer witnessed thousands of caribou traveling together in Northern Canada as they made their way north on their annual migration. The spectacular sight inspired Heuer to set out on an incredible adventure of his own. He and his research partner decided to follow the Porcupine caribou herd for five months through freezing weather conditions as the animals migrated north to rich feeding grounds where they would raise their young. The scientists' mission would bring to light some amazing facts about how these beautiful Arctic animals survive in their chilly habitat. In Caribou: And Reindeer, Too, kids go on an real-life adventure with biologist Karsten Heuer as he follows the Porcupine caribou herd through Northern Canada. Along the way, children will discover how caribou survive in their bone-chilling environment. Readers will also learn about the caribou's close relative, the reindeer. Large, full-color photos and a narrative format will keep readers turning the pages for more.
