Ubiquitous : celebrating nature's survivors
Sidman, Joyce.

From Publishers' Weekly:

The team behind the Caldecott Honor-winning Song of the Water Boatman pays tribute to biologically successful species-from mollusks and lichens to dandelions and sharks-in poems that appear in order of each animal's first appearance on earth (a striking, mazelike time line puts the billions of years into perspective). Sidman's words are vivid and affectionate-about single-celled diatoms, she writes, "Curl of sea-/ green wave/ alive/ with invisible jewels/ almost/ too beautiful/ to eat," and Prange's expressive linocuts capture the character of each animal. Fascinating factual information appears on each page; the graceful integration of science and art results in a celebratory story of survival. Ages 6-9. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
