Language Notes:

Text: English (translation)
Original Language: German

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-- Remarkable full-color photographs and a clear, well-developed text chronicle the first two years of two polar bears' lives. Using allusions to which children can relate, Larsen conveys the harsh arctic environment. He surmises the cubs' birth, the mother's six-month confinement in the snow den, their spring emergence--and their life outside on the ice and tundra, summer and winter, thereafter. The cubs' second summer (now they're almost as big as their mother) is their last as members of a family unit, and after the next spring they go their separate ways. The fine translation lends itself to reading aloud, and in that respect is better than the excellent but textlike treatments in Banks's Polar Bear on the Ice and Harrison's World of Polar Bears (both Gareth Stevens, 1989). Bright's Polar Bear (Watts, 1989) is concerned with the animal's distribution and survival in today's world. Larsen, a Norwegian biologist who has studied polar bears for more than 20 years, is cited in all three books; after reading his book, one comes away with great respect for this largest of land carnivores. --Ruth M. McConnell, San Antonio Pub . Lib .
