New BOARD BOOK: A Polar Bear’s World

In an icy den in the Arctic, two baby polar bears are born. Six weeks later they are big enough to follow their mother across the frozen ocean. For the next two years, the young bears will stay with their mother while she teaches them how to hunt. Climb into this book and find out what happens in a polar bear's world.

A Polar Bear’s World, now available as a board book for young readers, has just been published by Picture Window books. This new book, based on the 2010 book with the same title but now with a shorter text and sturdier pages, brings the story of a polar bear's first year to young readers. It follows two baby polar bears from birth to life on their own. A readable and lively text provides a close-up look at these powerful carnivores. Cut paper illustrations help tell the tales of these amazing animals and the chilly world in which they live. This picture book shows polar bears in their natural home along with other animals that share their environment. The book can be read aloud to younger children or an older child can read it alone.
