A Perfect Addition To Any Collection
Polar Bear, Polar Bear by Joan Keir Burnett is a beautiful book for toddlers.
The story explores the senses – see, hear, feel, touch – as we learn what is surrounding baby polar bear.
There is also a climate message as we see the ice caps melting. All the pages provide starting points for discussions with our children, no matter how young they are.
Written in rhyme this book has a wonderful bouncy feel to it. This sing-song pattern enables our children to anticipate what is coming next and to join in, after a few reads through. Repetition also aids the ability for our children to join in as we read the book together.
All the book is beautifully illustrated with big, bold pictures. Each page can be a talking point – what can you see? How do you feel? I particularly loved the polar bear picture with the snowflakes melting on his nose.
Polar Bear, Polar Bear is a perfect addition to any child’s personal collection. It is one to savor and to keep to pass down the generations.
I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
