Editorial Reviews

Resource Links - Linda Ludke
The landscape and wildlife of the North are beautifully captured in this three-board-book set.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Arctic Land is a package of three board books—Arctic Land, Arctic Sea and Arctic Sky. In the first, readers meet a variety of animals—caribou, wolf, musk ox, Arctic hare and polar bear who are presented with both their English and native names. The Arctic Sea also teems with life—there are whales, narwhales, seals, and walruses. The Arctic Sky is the domain of the ptarmigans, loons, snowy owls, swans, cranes and ravens. Along the bottom of the panels—these books fold out—readers will glean a few facts about the animals and the Arctic. For example ptarmigans live in the Arctic year round. A mother bowhead whale lifts her newly born calf to get its first breath of fresh air. Since all the books fan out, they can be placed on a table or shelf. There is information on each side of the panels. If you are heading out on an Arctic expedition with young childrenn, knowing the native and English names of all these creatures could be a help.
