Overview

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.

About the Author

Laura Crawford was an accomplished teacher and reading specialist at Sleepy Hollow School in the Chicago area. While teaching a science unit on the Arctic region, she became fascinated with the unique animals of the Arctic. The cumulative tale, In Arctic Waters, is the result of her curiosity and was written with her students in mind. Laura also authored The Pilgrims' Thanksgiving From A to Z, The American Revolution from A to Z, Postcards from Washington, Postcards from Chicago, and Postcards from New York City. She was an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and credits the critique groups with much of her success.
