A mysterious and impressive white desert, the Far North, has always fascinated children. Even today, this vast frozen region continues to provoke numerous questions, such as who were the first explorers to reach the North Pole? Have Inuit always lived in igloos? Is the traditional lifestyle led by northerners threatened by global warming? These are the questions that Le Grand Nord raconté aux enfants attempts to answer. The magnificent photographs reveal an unexpectedly beautiful northern landscape.
