Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2 A northern counting book set to the tune of "Over in the Meadow." This particularly timely ecological romp introduces Arctic animals, from beluga mamas and their calves to a family of lemmings to 10 little fox cubs curled up in their den with their mom. The lively, cheerful gouache artwork and the accessible text will easily lead into discussions of habitat and animal life. Hidden numbers appear on every spread, and a "Cool Facts!" section offers snippets of information and questions, such as, "Can you think of why an animal would want to be camouflaged?" A lyrics and music page wraps up this nicely packaged offering.-Susan Moorhead, New Rochelle Public Library, NY
