Synopsis: Teachers and parents, here is another favorite from Marianne, who has a special talent. The kids think it is entertainment while teachers and parents think it is a great lesson about the Arctic! This book combines singing, counting, and full-body action with terrific cut-paper illustrations that kids will want to imitate. Over in the Arctic, the snow goose honks and the wolf howls. Children too will joyfully honk and howl while they count the baby animals and sing to the tune of Over in the Meadow. And they will hunt for hidden animals on each page. A big plus for educators are several pages of extension ideas for curriculum and art projects as well as resources on the web and elsewhere.

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

Designed to be sung to "Over in the meadow," this rhyming counting book features arctic animals, parents and offspring doing something they would actually be doing in the wild. Different action verbs are used with each animal. There is a good amount of information following the text: extra facts about the tundra, extra arctic animals "hidden" in the illustrations, and animals covered in the regular text. This is followed by tips from the author on activities to use with the books, and a short bibliography; tips for the illustrator, the music to the song and colophon information. The text is large print, mostly black, except the featured number is in a color. The bright cut paper illustrations look like something done by a scrap booker gone wild. There are patterns on almost everything. While some of the wild patterns are a bit much for a close-up, from a distance they work well together. This book has been carefully designed for use with young children to get them moving and participating with the storyteller or reader, but group use would probably be more fun. --Barbara A. Rose, Washington Public Library

This counting book, cleverly illustrated by Jill Dubin, features Berkes' charming counting rhyme filled with interesting facts about animals of the Arctic. Included in each picture are hidden animals that will encourage readers to search the illustrations to learn more about the Arctic region. Both the author and the illustrator provide tips for using the book with children. Berkes includes several suggestions for extended activities, as well as a list of other print and web resources on arctic life. The final pages also include information about the Arctic Tundra, Hidden Arctic Animals, a brief paragraph about each of the Arctic animals in the rhyme, and the text put to the music of "Over in the Meadow," which can also be used to teach this counting exercise. Dubin offers information on her illustrative style for the book, which uses cut-paper illustrations to create beautifully-rendered examples of the animals and their Arctic habitat. This engaging book can be read, sung, or studied by individuals and groups as they learn how to count these amazing animals. --Naomi Williamson, Children's Literature
