The polar bear is the biggest and most powerful of the animals that are able to survive the hostile climate of the Arctic. Cubs are born during the cold dark winter, even though they start out with only a thin coat of fur and weigh a little over one pound. The mothers raise and teach them so they may grow and survive in the wild. Here is information about how polar bears swim and hunt, how they keep warm and dry, and the many other ways they adapt to their environment.

About the Author:

Gail Gibbons "has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children's writer-illustrator," according to the Washington Post. Winner of the 2010 Regina Award, she has written and illustrated more than fifty books for Holiday House. She lives in Corinth, Vermont.

From Booklist:

Gr. 2-4, younger for reading aloud. Gibbons follows her trademark format of colored sketches and simple, informative text in this solid introduction to polar bears. An introductory spread about the polar region includes a map and examples of the few other animals that live there. Gibbons goes on to describe the bear's body size and features, including interesting facts such as why the bears have no eyelashes (they would collect ice). Explanations of the bear's life cycle pair with cozy pictures of the mother bear in her snug den nursing her cubs. Warnings about environmental hazards affecting the bears and a "Paw Prints" section of fast facts conclude. Written in brief, engaging sentences with facts that inform but don't overwhelm, this is a good selection for beginning report writers; it will also work well as nonfiction read-aloud for young ones.
