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 learners; it is a pure delight to listen to. The "For Creative Minds" section helps children learn how these animals live in the cold, icy arctic region.
Where does In Arctic Waters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It was for my child. He liked it. Little bit to short but overall great.
What other book might you compare In Arctic Waters to and why?
Well, like any other book for children. Like The Ugly Duckling.
What about Donna German’s performance did you like?
Not long enough to make anything great, but let's say simple story.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
My child liked it. He was listening it before going to sleep.
Any additional comments?
Just to make it a little bit longer. Cheers
