What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Using cumulative verse, this book introduces children to the polar bears, caribou, foxes, snow owls, whales, seals, fish, and others hardy enough to survive the Arctic’s cold, and dark winter, while giving young readers an understanding of how each creature is inextricably linked together in the chain of life.The Arctic winter is cold, snowy, and dark. The barren landscape is covered by a layer of snow that stretches to the horizon, with nothing to disrupt it but jagged rocks. There are only a few plants and no sunlight. And yet, there are animals that live in this harsh environment. With lyrical text and glowing paintings that capture this mystically beautiful environment with stunning realism, this unusual book fascinates and inspires children of all ages.Other Books in the Series: HERE IS ANTARCTICA, HERE IS THE AFRICAN SAVANNA, HERE IS THE CORAL REEF, HERE IS THE SOUTHWESTERN DESERT, HERE IS THE TROPICAL RAIN FOREST, and HERE IS THE WETLAND.
