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.
