Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Chris Newsham
In the spring, two polar bear cubs leave their den to explore the frozen landscape for the first time. Cautious in the beginning, they stick close to their mother, rolling and tumbling in the snow as they play. But there is so much more to see that they soon venture off, chasing each other until they get tired. Hungry and lonely, they wonder where their mother is. She is close by, and all are soon reunited to head back home. From the "Photo Adventure Book" series, this simple story and the accompanying close-up photographs are ideal for parents to share with young children. Each page of text has one or two words that are printed in an extra large, bold font so that they can be read easily by the emerging reader. Fact stops along the way provide additional information about polar bears; these can be read separately or along with the story. Questions are provided at the end of the book to spark discussions between parents and their children. The page numbers are set on polar bear footprints, and the question numbers on the final page are printed on snowballs. Reviewer: Chris Newsham
Kirkus Reviews
The Photo Adventure series offers readers a look at the lives of three familiar baby animals through some amazing closeup photography. Young children follow twin polar bear cubs, a baby penguin (Baby Penguin Slips and Slides; 9781601152855; paper 9781601152862) and a baby elephant (Baby Elephant's Fun in the Sun; 9781601152831; paper 9781601152848) through a typical day of activity-some eating and bathing, but mostly playtime with friends (including hideandseek and chase). Frequent "Fact Stops" offer a sentence or two of additional information about the animals. A mix of fonts encourages adults and children to read this together, with the youngest child's part being single words that can be deduced from context and picture clues. A "Look back" section tests readers' comprehension with three questions and encourages readers to see connections between their lives and the lives of the animals. In his flirtation with anthropomorphism, Teitelbaum limits his audience to the youngest children, and even they could have benefited from learning that animals' play is actually socialization, communication and strength and coordination building (just like kids). Cutesy, but with untapped potential. (Informational early reader. 26)
