A first introduction to the largest living land-dwelling carnivore. Except for one dramatic view of a nanurluk, or mythical giant bear (paired only with a perfunctory description), the bears in Christopher’s low-contrast Arctic land- and seascapes adopt majestic but static poses.

Synopsis

Kids will learn how polar bears raise their babies, what they eat and how they hunt, where they can be found, and other interesting information, like the fact that polar bears actually have transparent fur and black skin!
