Overview

The Book & Diorama Series—an innovative children's book program with the world-famous American Museum of Natural History: each title is a collectible treasure box that fits in the hand—and fills an entire imagination. Three million visitors a year visit the American Museum of Natural History, and many—if not all—are drawn to the Museum's renowned life-size dioramas. And now, capturing their magical realism, comes a series of dazzling book and diorama sets. Focusing on an individual animal and re-creating its environment, each title features two custom-sculpted vinyl animals—a mother and baby, created by the Museum's own sculptor—set against a color backdrop in a clear display case. Nestled into a sleeve on the reverse is a 64-page full-color book packed with science and discovery. In The Great White Shark kids will finally understand one of nature's most misunderstood creatures. Joseph Brennan is a free-lance writer and author of many books for children. He took up scuba diving to enter the world of sharks. A collectible gift for kids ages 6-9.

Describes the physical characteristics, habitat, and behavior of polar bears, often called the rulers of the land of the midnight sun.
