Item description for In Arctic Waters by Laura Crawford & Ben Hodson...

In the style of "The House That Jack Built," young readers can follow polar bears, walruses, seals, narwhals, and beluga whales as they chase each other in the water around an iceberg when suddenly an Inuit hunter appears.

Publishers Description
This arctic adaptation of "This is the House that Jack Built" follows polar bears, walruses, seals, narwhals and beluga whales as they chase each other around "the ice that floats in the Arctic waters." Not only is the rhythmic, cumulative prose good for early readers; it is a pure delight to read aloud. The "For Creative Minds" section helps children learn how these animals live in the cold, icy arctic region.

Reviews - What do customers think about In Arctic Waters?

In Arctic Waters  Mar 21, 2008
"In Arctic Waters" is an excellent book for giving young children a unique view of animals living in the cold waters of the far north. I used it for my preschoolers and it was great at showing them what is actually under the water as it shows a slice of the ocean rather than looking from the top down. Quite educational.
A fun Arctic introduction plus science  Sep 24, 2007
A fun book that introduces a preschooler to third grader about the Arctic animals and their relationship to the natives in the area. You can play this book both ways, as a fun rhyme for kids and as a more serious science topic for older kids. The book not only has the basic story line but also has additional materials in the back that explains the scientific and cultural significance of each character such as the Inuit's role in area.

Arctic Learning Fun  May 23, 2007
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.
A Fun Artic   Mar 28, 2007
Parents, grandparents and teachers looking for a fun read for young children will embrace this new book by Laura Crawford, a Chicago-area [...] teacher. The book has the familiar rhythm and plot of The House That Jack Built, but the author has set this story in Arctic Waters on a floating chunk of ice. One by one the animals, including a fish, a blubbery thick beluga, a narwhal and more, get on the floating ice until it can hold no more. The attractive illustrations are just right. The story is fun to read aloud. Sure to become a favorite of young readers.
Fun As Well As Educational  Mar 20, 2007
Reminiscent of This is the House that Jack Built, Artic Waters is written in the same type of ongoing rhyme. The characters in this charming book are: a furry white polar bear, a walrus, a seal, a beluga, a fish, and the man who hunts them. The sea creatures are saved when a large piece of iceberg breaks off, the fish scurry to safety and the hunter paddles off to safer hunter grounds.

Sylvan Dell books are always charming, funny, and brightly illustrated. But the most wonderful thing about them is the "For Creative Minds," in the back of each book. Arctic Waters offers five-pages of educational supplements. Beginning with instructions how to find the Arctic Circle, there is also information about the people who live there, polar bears, walruses, seals, narwhal, and beluga whales.

You and your child will love this book
