    cleverly-written, colorful children's book

    I really loved this cleverly written book with the colorful, kid-friendly illustrations. Author Laura Crawford did an excellent job with her rhyming text that introduces each arctic animal and then builds on sentences that make for a fun read. I give this one a high five for its terrific text, storyline, and awesome, refreshing illustrations. If your children love water and animals, this is the book for them! As with all Sylvan Dell books, there's a section at the end entitled 'For Creative Minds' that is also available online. It contains sections on: 'Arctic Waters', 'The Inuit', 'Arctic Animal Adaptations', 'Polar Bears', 'Walruses', 'Seals', 'Narwhals', and 'Beluga Whales'. There is also a section on: 'Creative Sparks ¿ Mix and Match Activity Book'. Gayle Jacobson-Huset ¿ Managing Editor Stories for Children Magazine

    Arctic Learning Fun

    In Arctic Waters What an enjoyable way to learn about Arctic sea and land animals in this rhyming tale! The book, created by author Laura Crawford, has the cadence and cumulative story of the rhyme ¿The House That Jack Built.¿ It is wonderful that the charm and humor in the book is such that a young child can easily identify with each animal. Ben Hodson¿s paintings wed the rhyming text perfectly. Children will delight in the expressions of each animal, expressions that tell the tale as much as the text. At the end of the book there is a mini encyclopedia where the inquisitive child can learn more about each animal. It can also be the basis of a classroom unit. Highly recommended for ages three to seven.
