This book is a good choice to learn about Polar Bears and we could help stop animals extinction and stop the global warming. I recommend this book because it have at the end of the book a page talking about what are the main things that we can do to stop global warming and animals extinction.

Great nonfiction book that reads like a picture book. There are smaller font sentences on the page that give more detailed facts about the polar bears for a more in depth read.

Good for preschool storytimes.

"I was very small when I saw my first dolphin," says zoologist Nicola Davies, recalling a seminal visit with her father to a dolphin show at the zoo. Enchanted at the sight of what she called the "big fish" jumping so high and swimming so fast, she determined right then that she would meet the amazing creatures again "in the wild, where they belonged." And indeed she did--as part of a pair of scie ...more
