Polar Bears

by Gail Gibbons Illustrated by Gail Gibbons

In a charmingly illustrated, solid introduction to a magnificent Arctic animal, readers will learn where the polar bear lives, what it eats, how it gets its food, when it mates, how it rears its young, and the dangers it faces.

Informative text with plenty of illustrations, diagrams, and cutaways reveal the intriguing lives of these imposing giants of the animal world. Explanations of the bear's life cycle pair with cozy pictures of the mother bear in her snug den nursing her cubs. Warnings about environmental hazards affecting the bears and a Paw Prints section of fast facts conclude the book.
