Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4-A detailed, richly illustrated title. Miller is a natural storyteller and expertly interweaves facts into her narrative. Van Zyle's dramatic paintings that flow across each double-page spread are created with acrylics painted on untempered masonite panels, and vividly portray seasonal changes in the land and life cycle of the caribou. Both the words and pictures breathe life into the images of a cold and windy Arctic winter, the scraping sound of the animals pawing for food beneath the snow, the crackling of the ice, bulls fighting for mates, and numerous other behaviors. Because the text is superimposed over the illustrations some pages are a bit difficult to read, but well worth the effort for every word is carefully chosen to re-create the sights and sounds of the caribou's environment. An exceptional source of information and an outstanding picture book.

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. Although the picture book format and the focus on one caribou mother and her calf on the Alaskan tundra make this seem to be only a "storybook," Miller provides information in the text that goes well beyond the picturesque. For example, an illustration showing the caribou mother jumping in alarm is accompanied by text explaining the concurrent release of a strong scent from the animal's hoof glands--the literal "smell of danger." The oil paintings provide background vistas that will give the book appeal for very young nature enthusiasts.

This book will be a great addition to the books I use to educate children about the Arctic. The art work is well done and the text is easy for children to understand.
