Sea Bear: A Journey for Survival
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
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.
