Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
Dennis Rockhill's Polar Slumber/Sueño polar is virtually unique as a completely wordless picturebook that tells the wonderfully entertaining story of a sleepy little girl, a backyard snow bear, and a dreaming fantasy of a journey together through frozen landscapes and exotic creatures. All of which fade away with the coming of morning. The artwork is of museum quality and the imaginative and magical story is utterly charming. Polar Slumber/Sueño polar is very highly recommended, especially for children preschool through first grade.
Heartland Reviews
This [Polar Slumber/Sueño polar] is a very interesting interactive picture book-interactive between the child and the adult reader. The child's imagination is brought into play and his interpretations of the pictures are discussed . . . We rated this book four hearts.
Readers Preference Reviews
A very unique book, Polar Slumber . . . tells a story simply by following the illustration . . . This is a book for stretching the imagination of children and adults and was a lot of fun. Beautifully illustrated, the "story" seems to draw you in. Polar Slumber is a highly recommended book for anyone who wants something to "read" that is sure to spark conversations, opinions, and imaginations.
