Over in the Arctic by Marianne Berkes

Book Description

Arctic animals are amazing! They have learned to live where it is very cold and the nights are very long! Children can learn about these marvelous creatures while they count, clap and sing to the rhythm of the whimsical children's tune, 'Over in the Meadow'. Hidden on each page are other species for children to find. As in Marianne Berkes' other bestselling books, Over on the Ocean and Over in the Jungle, all the animals are identified in the back of the book along with further information about them. Jill Dubin's illustrations show how fun and creative art can be using cut paper as the medium. Ages 3-8

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Modeled after the traditional song "Over in the Meadow," this (for the most part) easily chanted rhyme introduces a variety of land and sea animals and birds found in the tundra. Standard number-recognition and counting concepts are augmented by additional ideas and vocabulary in the active text, which highlights the Arctic climate, animal habits and the proper names for the animals' young. "Over in the Arctic / Where some creatures migrate, / Lived a mother snow goose / And her little goslings eight. / 'Honk,' said the mother. / 'We honk,' said the eight. / So they honked and flew south / Where some creatures migrate." Graceful, stylish cut-paper collages in a mixture of bright colors and patterns create icy backgrounds for each scene. Well-conceived extension ideas for curriculum and art connections follow a "hidden animal" game and a "Fact or Fiction" explanation about the rhyme's tundra environment. A value-added exploration of the Arctic for preschoolers and early elementary-age children. (Picture book. 3-7) (Kirkus Reviews)
