Ice Bear

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

A bear like no other, the polar bear is simultaneously gentle and predatory, playful and solitary, fast and graceful. Polar bears have lived in the Arctic harmoniously alongside the Inuit people, for many hundreds of years. Their self-sufficiency and survival skills have influenced the Inuits and inspired this book.

Facts about polar bears are woven alongside the lyrical text in this sumptuously illustrated picture book. The illustrations encompass the icy plains and expanses of ocean, which span the Arctic and effectively convey the gentle majesty of these beautiful animals. A delightful book to read aloud or independently, it is both informative and captivating.
