I really like the Science Comic Series. They cover many subject matters, but this one is about Polar Bears as well as what it takes to survive in the high north. It shares information about the formation of ice, the melting of the polar ice caps and global warming as well as what we can do to stop it. We learn about a polar bear family, how they live, what they eat, how they hunt and more. Buckle up as you read this adventure about Anik, Isla and their mother. Join two curious polar bear cubs as they play, hunt, and navigate life in the Arctic. With the assistance of their mother they learn polar bear biology and behaviour, as well as strategies and skills that will help them thrive in a landscape that is rapidly changing beyond their control. Each season brings different challenges and changes in their way of life. We learn about the family unit and why their father is not with them. Even though Isla feels bad for the seals they are hunting, her mother shares that they do not feel what is happening and that they all love the seals, they love them so much they want them inside them. This book shares a lot of information about Polar Bears in a cute and competitive way between siblings. I learned a few things from this book that I did not know about the polar ice caps or polar bears. The graphics are well done. They are not too scary, but the bears are definitely wild animals and although the cubs are cute, they are not pictured as pets. The graphics add greatly to the text and information shared. A great addition to a school, classroom or public library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon my request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
