Follow the rescue of orphaned polar bear Kali (pronounced Cully) from the Inupiat village of Kali (Point Lay in English) to the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage to his new home at the Buffalo Zoo in New York with Luna, a female polar bear. This photographic journey beautifully captures the remarkable development of the cub, who initially drinks from a baby bottle, sucks his paw for comfort, and sleeps with a "blankie" as he rapidly grows into the largest land carnivore on earth.

About the Author:

Award-winning nature author Jennifer Keats Curtis is frequently found among students and teachers, talking about literacy or conservation. In addition to the Animal Helpers series, Baby Owl's Rescue, and Turtles In My Sandbox for Sylvan Dell, some of her other recent titles include Osprey Adventure, Saving Squeak: A River Otter's Tale, and Seahorses. Jennifer resides in Maryland, with her family and a wide variety of pets.

Review:

Gomes's scattered photographs create both an album like effect and a sort of visual narrative as Kali plays, explores, and naps. Though Kali's permanent home ends up being at the Buffalo Zoo, rather than in the wild, readers should enjoy seeing a grown-up Kali find a companion in another polar bear named Luna. - Publishers Weekly

Very young readers or those just listening will find Kali's story, 25 pages of pictures and commentary, a captivating journey to be enjoyed over and over again. Color photographs go hand-in-glove with the clearly written prose, making early readers feel part of Kali's rescue. - Science Books & Films

The captivating photographs fill the pages. It is through additional information at the back of the book that readers learn general facts about polar bears. - Library Media Connection
