Here is Antarctica by Madeleine Dunphy

Book Description

Penguins, whales, seals, fish, and many other animals are all part of Antarctica's food web. In this striking picture book, Madeleine Dunphy uses a cumulative approach, combining lyrical verse with repetition to reveal the region's interdependency of life. Tom Leonard's gorgeous illustrations, from the flash of orange on a penguin's beak to iridescent icebergs jutting from the sea, capture a wondrous miracle -- the circle of life. Here Is Antarctica educates as it entertains, inspiring children to explore this fascinating ecosystem page by page.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A rhythmic, cumulative text and detailed acrylic paintings emphasizing the pinks, blues and grays of the icy sea and sky introduce the relationships among animals in the Antarctic ecosystem. Each double-page spread adds another animal: two species of seals, orcas, krill, petrel, silverfish, skua and three species of penguins. Like other books in the Web of Life series, this concludes with a brief explanation of the area and the animals mentioned (allowing the careful reader to distinguish the different seals and penguins illustrated). While the meter hiccups occasionally, the familiar, House-that-Jack-Built pattern will appeal to young listeners, and the repetition is a boon for early readers. Unfortunately, both the illustrations and the repeated " icebergs / all jagged and spiked / that rise from the sea / in this cold world of ice" might leave the impression that the penguins have no land home at all; in fact, they breed on land or pack ice, and the presence of icebergs can actually hamper their reproduction. Teachers will welcome this appealing introduction but should supplement it with other information. (Informational picture book. 4-7) (Kirkus Reviews)
