School Library Journal
Here Is the Wetland by Madeleine Dunphy makes this world appealing for younger readers and listeners. . . . Children love this type of repeating book so that will make this a nifty and popular introduction to an important ecosystem. The pictures are beautiful and the frog on the cover should make this a book readers will want to pick up.”
The rhythmic cumulative text of this book introduces readers to the interdependence of plants and animals in a wetland habitat. Uncluttered watercolors convey a sense of balance and harmony . . .”
Kindergarten-Grade 3-An excellent addition to books on the environment. Many children will be familiar with freshwater marshes and the animals and plants portrayed here, but this picture book is accessible to those readers who are not. Cumulative phrases, reminiscent of "This is the house that Jack built," give a pleasant cadence to the text, which paints a picture of this ecological community. McLoughlin's attractive, full-paged, colorful paintings capture wetland life. An address for the National Audubon Society completes this beautiful package.
