Recommends it for: Kindergarten through high school age readers
Weather waves of scientific observations and analogous commentary of life aboard a research vessel, on an expedition that survives nearly a month at sea, as the author/illustrator recounts variegated seabirds (as well as, other life forms) that she encountered and enumerated, while traversing the Arctic marine ecosystem. Adroitly illustrated and drafted for kindergarten through high school age readers.
