Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hans de Beers's books about the Arctic cub inspire a quartet of novelty Little Polar Bear Stories, adapted by Susan Hill Long, illus. by DiCicco Studios. In I Found You! Lars the polar bear cub visits the jungle and plays hide-and-seek with his friend Henry, a hippo. A liftable flap extends each spread and reveals an additional friend. In the second, Where Is Mother?, the hero follows various sets of footprints (their owners are revealed with a lift of the flap) in search of his mother. The last pair of titles provides two pages of stickers with which readers can illustrate the story. Lars and friends try to teach snow goose Pieps how to fly in You Can Do It! and discover an old shipwreck in The Secret Hideout.
Children's Literature
Lars, a polar bear, and three of his friends—a rabbit, a seal and a bunny—build a snow ramp to help a little snow goose, Pieps, learn to fly. The ramp did not work, and poor Pieps is sad. Then, Lars meets Caruso, a penguin who became lost at sea during a storm. Caruso cannot fly either. Lars gives Caruso a tour of the North Pole and introduces him to his friends, who think that Caruso, because he is a bird, can teach Pieps to fly. Caruso surprises the friends when he says, "Not all birds can fly." Yet Caruso does teach Pieps to flap his wings and fly. The story also is a good example of teamwork. And, Caruso's positive attitude despite not being able to do something might inspire kids to overcome their own limitations. Includes two pages of reusable stickers depicting the characters. Part of the "a little polar bear story" series. 2003, Night Sky Books, Ages 3 to 6.
