    1. I need to be upfront and honest, Annie Patterson, the illustrator of this book, is a talented dear friend. Her beautiful artwork is what makes this book. The diversity of this book is wonderful. Animals from all around the globe are pictured in her beautiful watercolor style. (I’m partial to her walrus and other arctic animals.) She also includes diversity with her people and this is a major selling point for my community. Multicultural children are represented and there are even Iñupiaq peop [...]

    2. This book does a nice job of explaining how people and animals living in different climates keep comfortable and maintain their body temperature with a variety of adaptations and behaviors. The illustrations are lovely and the text is very informative; makes sense even to young readers or listeners. Too Hot? Too Cold? would be a great addition to any elementary school library or classroom for science curriculum or those with a passion for knowledge. Educators would benefit from breaking this up [...]

    3. This book has great illustrations that let students to discover the many ways humans and animals adopt to heat and cold. I would use this book to teach a science lesson 2-5 graders.

    4. A great resource for exploring how humans and animals maintain their body heat and adapt in their surroundings.Pros: Plentiful facts (I learned a few new things!). Beautiful artwork. Diversity in humans, animals, and environments are represented here. The only negative for me: It was a little too wordy and lengthy for my Kindergartener, who normally loves learning about animals and science. Kids a few years older with an interest in the subject may enjoy the amount of facts, though.

    5. Title: Too Hot? Too Cold?Author: Caroline Arnold Illustrator: Annie PattersonGenre: Concept BookTheme(s): Awareness, Discovery, Understanding Opening line/sentence: If you live in Alaska you must put on warm clothes when you go outdoors on a cold and winter day. Brief Book Summary: This concept book discusses the concept of warm and cold. It talks about the difference in hot and cold temperature around the world, along with what it means for animals to be cold and warm blooded. It discusses why [...]

    6. I absolutely love the illustrations by Annie Patterson in this book! The text is very informative, but reads a bit like a science book. I appreciate all the examples of different kinds of animals and think it was helpful.

    7. Very informative book! As a teacher, you can tie in science and health. Along with keeping the child's interest! Lots of great examples in this book with captions to explain how the animal or person keeps cool or warm in their environment.

    8. This is a great book that explains the concept of body temp and how it changes! Very few children's books about body temperature. this one is pretty thorough. Therefore I feel this book is rare!

    9. As someone who was born and raised in Florida and hates hot weather (which explains why I now live in Minnesota:>) I am keenly aware of temperatures and my body’s reaction to them. This fun science book offers clear, concise, and sometimes surprising details about why and how our bodies and animals’ bodies control or affect their temperatures.Each spread has a main topic, like “Warm-Blooded Animals,” “Sweating,” or “Fur, Hair, and Feathers.” Then a couple of paragraphs give th [...]

    10. This book provides a clear and direct account of thermoregulation. The illustrations provide mostly pictures of the specific animals being discussed, and in a couple of places close-up cross-section diagrams of the anatomical processes (such as sweating). The illustration style is completely corresponding, with little to no complement, and no counterpoint. And the text offers me little more than I can find by looking up thermoregulation and following links to each of the types of animals being d [...]

    11. Arnold has put together a lot of good information in the deceptively simple picture book. Basic facts are presented in a paragraph with large print with more detailed information provided in neat, easy to read callouts in smaller print. Illustrations are drawn in warm and colorful style and greatly enhance the text. How the body functions to maintain its optimal temperature is explained in understandable terms and creates in the reader a desire to know more. There is a glossary, but unfortunatel [...]

    12. Every one know about humans can keep their body temperature according to the changing of the environment temperature. When we feel cool, we will keep our body warmer. And when we feel hot, we will keep our body cooler. But few of us know the reason and detail. This is a good science book to explain how human and animals keep body temperature just right, including ectotherm and endotherm. This book is suitable to be used as a "partner" book in science class. The language of this book is so clean [...]

    13. This is a fascinating book that explains the science how how we warm and cool our bodies. Different animals are depicted, both endothermic and ectothermic, and the book also explains how animals have adapted to different environments. The topics are short, but very informative and the illustrations are colorful and cartoonish. We read the book over the course of two evenings so we didn't get overwhelmed by the quantity of information and overall, we really enjoyed reading this book together.

    14. Too Hot? Too Cold? Keeping Body Temperature Just Right, teaches students about what is the right body temperature of different animals, in different places. The book also explains where those animals live and why that setting is the place for the animal to live based on their body temperatures. This story could be sued in the classroom during a science lesson on temperature or animals.

    15. -warm vs cold blooded-temperature -heat regulation-animals (used them to prove theory's about heat in nature, for example polar beard and whales have fat to insulate themselves) -weather- fat as insulation -hibernationNot good for read alouds

    16. Lovely book with a lot of information clearly presented about how humans and animals keep comfortable in various temperatures and a range of situations. The reader might expect photographs to accompany this information, but the artwork is effective and unexpected.
