Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2- A well-intentioned but pedestrian rhyming text introduces children to the polar bears' world, from a mother raising cubs to threats posed by global warming. The oversize format features watercolor Arctic scenes that are at their best when shared with a group. The pages leave an overly busy impression, partly because of Walton's detailed style but also because they are printed on paper that features a subtle snowflake background and border. Both the intricate, entwining, plantlike snowflakes and the individual paint dabs representing falling snowflakes catch the light in varying ways, which at times obscure the animals. The author issues a call to action: "across the land/of the midnight sun/the ice is melting.../oh, what can be done? (well, lots can be done.../just turn the page)." The final "Learning Page for Helping the Bears" features three scientific sources, three global-warming organizations, and a list of suggestions that repeat themselves (readers are twice told to turn off the lights and watch less television) even though the section has only four paragraphs.-Ellen Fader, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

    Snowy White World to Save is a great opportunity to begin some

    Snowy White World to Save is a great opportunity to begin some wonderful talks with your children about global warming and conserving energy. I am always on my kids to: turn off the lights, don't leave the water running, if you aren't watching tv- you don't need it for background noise!! yet it goes in one ear and out the other. Stephanie Lisa Tara gives us the opportunity to use animals (all kids love them, right?) and help put things into perspective for them.

    We begin the story with a Mama bear and her cubs as they leave the den and search for food. My 7yr old was a little upset about the bears eating a seal but the story and pictures weren't graphic and he quickly understood that it's normal in nature. As global warming begins, we see the bears traveling farther and farther from their home trying to find food to eat. Although everyone loves a happily ever after, the story with our bear family looking out over the melting ice and asks " oh, what can be done?" It sparked great questions from my children and they loved reading the ideas of ways they can help conserve energy themselves. They have even asked to take our copy to school and have it read to their classes so they can share how we need to work on conserving energy to help save the bears home.

    Snowy White World to Save is a really fun and entertaining story

    Snowy White World to Save is a really fun and entertaining story that has tremendous educational benefits as it teaches your children about global warming.  The story chronicles the journey of a mother polar bear and her cubs, teaching children about the polar bears' habits, their climate, their food, and what can happen when there is no food as a result of global warming, emphasizing effects this has on the bears, nature, and human beings.  The illustrations are amazing and just multiply the message the author is trying to convey, while telling the story in a way that will capture your child's attention.  In addition, Stephanie Lisa Tara has also provided wonderful teaching material for your child to further bring home this message that is geared toward ways to conserve energy and protect the planet. These activities can be adapted for a younger child, on up the older child.  Snowy White World to Save is another great book that would be a wonderful and delightful addition to your child's library.  I definitely recommend it.

    Snowy White World to Save addresses the issue of global warming and the affects on one bear family as their world of ice and snow begins to melt. In a simple rhyme, the story of a typical day in the polar bear family's life is told but the beauty of their world disappears as the ice melts and food is no longer available. The bears are forced to seek out garbage dumps for things to eat. This is a beautifully illustrated 10×13 inch book in cool whites, grays and blue colors that projects the pristine world of the Arctic animals. However, the plight of the bear and her cubs are illustrated in a sad and jarring contrast of browns and reds as they forage for food in the human settlement. If you are a responsible parent interested in the environment, ecology and the future of the earth and if you are trying to instill that interest and responsibility in your children, this is a book that will help. There is a section in the book that gives children a list of the things they can do to help keep our planet healthy and some web site sources for the adults to explore. What a wonderful and gentle way to introduce to our children their responsibility to the earth and its environment. Stephanie Lisa Tara has garnered literary praise for her previous children's books, and I feel certain Snowy White World to Save will also receive the attention it deserves. Armchair Interviews says: A children's introduction to global warming.
