Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
From falcons who inhabit the tundra to polar bears, walrus and whales who inhabit the ice cap, the Darlings take us on an Arctic adventure. For each of the fourteen animals depicted, we learn the baby's name, birthplace, vital statistics, food preferences, parental care giving, enemies and home and all are accompanied by full-page pictures and smaller insets. In addition to the animal facts, readers will also learn about the Arctic region.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3Two appealing introductions to distinctive regions of the world. Each double-page spread presents information about an animal baby, designates the area in which it lives, and includes vital facts such as birth weight, food, and natural enemies. The text is written in clear and simple language. End notes explain the different types of arctic habitats and the layers of tropical rain forests. The books' main selling point, however, is the engaging full-color photographs that provide a close-up look at each animal. Collections could benefit from both titles, although Arctic Babies covers an environment that is not frequently encountered in children's books.Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
