 Here is the water
both shallow and still
that soaks the soil
of this murky, moist world:
Here is the wetland.

It is known as the wetland. Atop its glittering surface and below in its shadowy depths, birds, bass, minks, and muskrats struggle to survive and flourish. Madeleine Dunphy's lyrical prose provides a clear understanding of how each living creature links to the other in a vital chain of life. Artist Wayne McLoughlin adds a stunning visual perspective with luminously detailed paintings that convey the fragile beauty and complexity of this fascinating and critically important ecological community.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Named an "Outstanding Science Trade Book for Students K-12" by the National Science Teachers Association and Children's Book Council.

"An excellent addition to books on the environment . . . paints a picture of this ecological community. McLoughlin's attractive, full-paged, colorful paintings capture wetland life."
--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."
--Library Talk

"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 . . ."
--Horn Book
