The Polar Bear

The Polar Bear
By Jenni Desmond
Enchanted Lion, 2016. Informational.

A young girl pulls this very book from a shelf and is transported to the magical, arctic world of the polar bear. The little girl is immersed in a polar landscape as she learns about the habitat, habits, and characteristics of this fascinating mammal.

One of the most beautiful informational books in years, the painterly style of the illustrations is charming, lush, and fun. The often all white and blue pages are beautifully offset by splashes of bright color - like the red crown the little girl is shown wearing as well. Certainly one of the shining informational books for children in years - this is a perfect atmospheric read to enjoy the rest of our very snowy winter.
