Lindsay Moore’s remarkable and beautifully illustrated picture book follows a lone polar bear as she makes her way across sea ice in the Arctic. Sea Bear is a deeply moving and informative story about perseverance, family, nature, and climate change that will resonate with readers of all ages.

A solitary polar bear travels across the sea ice in pursuit of food. As the ice melts and food becomes scarce, she is forced to swim for days. Finally, storm-tossed and exhausted, she finds shelter on land, where she gives birth to cubs and waits for the sea to freeze again.

Informed by the author’s background in marine science, Sea Bear is a vivid and moving page-turner with a vital message about our changing planet. This is a gorgeously illustrated book, with the perfect marriage of scientific fact and poetry, that shows the reality of climate change and how it poses a threat to animals of the Arctic. Perfect for family and classroom sharing.

Includes extensive backmatter about Arctic animals, climate change, and sea ice

SEA BEAR teaches about how polar bears live and survive. It teaches how they're patient, what they eat, and that they aren't land bears. When the summer comes and the ice thins, the polar bear must travel elsewhere to live.

The life of a polar bear isn't what I expected. They wander around the arctic rather than living on land. SEA BEAR opens your eyes to how difficult living in an icy environment can be and how strong-willed the polar bears are. It makes me respect them that much more!

The illustrations and colorful and vibrant. There's also a section in the back with information about other animals above and below the ice. SEA BEAR is both educational and fun for children who love animals, especially bears.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this book to fans of animals, bears, and icy environments.
