Pole to Pole


ASK March 2021. Who lives at the top and bottom of the Earth? Far-roaming terns, friendly penguins, and chilly scientists.

Ice, ice, baby! From icy pole to icy pole, this edition of ASK Magazine covers the Arctic and the Antarctic, teaching you what lies on either end of the earth and which side you’ll find the penguins on (spoiler alert: it’s the south).


From nights that never get fully dark to nights that are full of colorful lights, the poles provide tons of unique features and your children can explore them all. Jump from ‘berg to ‘berg as you meet the bears, birds, and beluga whales who habitat the poles as well as understand what takes to survive – let alone live – in such harsh climates. And we couldn’t talk poles without talking penguins!
