This informational story picture book gives a nice rudimentary and accessible view of the wetlands environment. The book uses prominent illustration to portray this captivating perspective. The information is focused on the interaction of organisms and is very limited in scope and depth. The style is has clarity and uses a poetic tone that describes how many animals in the wetlands depend on each other. Their are virtually no background expectations as this book is very basic and probably intended for a k - 3 audience but its artistic nature makes it appealing to more age levels. The book is organized by the poems structure which is repetitive and cumulative. Each page repeats what has come before, adding a new line to the composition while the artwork illustrates the pages addition. There are no reference aids except for a final page which identifies the organisms referred to in the text. Information on the author tells the reader that the writer has a degree in anthropology and develops educational programs based on her research of global environmental conditions. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977379582, Paperback)

The wetland is a murky, moist, and mysterious world. Atop its glittering surface and beneath its shadowy depths, birds, bass, minks, and muskrats struggle to survive and flourish. Madeleine Dunphy’s lyrical prose shows the relationships between the wetland’s plants and animals, giving young readers a clear picture of how each living creature depends on the others for survival. Illustrator Wayne McLoughlin adds stunning visuals,  with luminous, detailed paintings that convey the fragile beauty and complexity of this critically important ecological community.
