for Here Is Antarctica by Madeleine Dunphy and Tom Leonard
Using cumulative verse, this book introduces children to the penguins, whales, seals, fish, icebergs and sea ice that make up Antarctica's ecosystem, while giving young readers an understanding of the interdependency of life in this unique environment.
In this striking picture book, Madeleine Dunphy combines lyrical verse with repetition to demonstrate the food web in Antarctica. 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.
