Polar Bear Journeyby Debbie S. Miller, Jon Van Zyle
In a cozy den protected from the sub-zero blizzard raging outside, a mother polar bear gives birth to two tiny cubs. For weeks the cubs grow stronger, until at last it is time to break out of the den and explore the wide world outside. Hunting, swimming, stalking, and traveling across dangerous sea ice are all important survival lessons the cubs must learn from their mother before they can venture out on their own.
This insightful look at the world's most distinctive bear combines a moving story line with intriguing bits of information about the animal and its life in the Arctic.
“Lovely acrylic paintings accompany this informative and lyrical text. . . . Polar bear diet, habitat, and parenting behavior are smoothly integrated into the satisfying narrative.” School Library Journal
