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 . . ."
