ICE BEAR

Author: Nicola Davies

Illustrator: Gary Blythe

Publisher: Walker Books

Synopsis: This is an informative, gorgeously illustrated study of the majestic polar bear. Huge, magnificent, alone, a white bear moves through the frozen Arctic. Powerful hunter, tender mother and gentle playmate - she shares this land of ice and snow with the Inuit people, who watch and learn from her.

Reasons for selection. Nicola Davies' lyrical writing is both emotive and well-researched. Information is presented in different ways, providing an opportunity for children to consider the differences. The striking illustration will engage and provoke discussion.
