Baby Mammoth Mummy: Frozen in Time!

Baby Mammoth Mummy: Frozen in Time!
By Christopher Sloan
National Geographic, 2011. 48 pages. Nonfiction.

Baby Lyuba is a woolly mammoth who was found perfectly preserved after tens of thousands of years in an icy grave. She was found in Siberia, where the winters can reach up to minus 75 degrees. But back when Lyuba was alive, this frozen tundra was a lovely, grassy environment to live in. Baby Mammoth Mummy has incredible photographs and information about the scientific investigation into how Lyuba lived and died. She was frozen with a smile on her face- which is equally cute and creepy. Kids will be fascinated by the unique facts and pictures.
