Ice Bear: In the Steps of the Polar Bear is written by Nicoloa Davies and is illustrated by Gary Blythe. The illustrations help the book so much because of all the pastel colors that they end up using. The book has a ton of different colors in it like the sunset and the ocean are varied with colors of blue and orange. This is more of an informational book than anything because it is not giving you too much information is gives you enough information that is good. I would actually use this book i ...more

This book is a non-fiction picture book about the lives of polar bears. The illustrations are beautiful and it contains a ton of information on polar bears. Each page contains part of the "story" and also includes facts about polar bears. At the end is a page breifly describing how polar bears are endagered and simple tips on what we can do to help.
This book could be used as a read-aloud for a K-4 class, but the activities/discussions would vary greatly depending on the age range. For the youn

A wonderful book that tells just enough details about the polar bear to teach children something new yet not so dense with info that it loses that picture-book feel. Beautiful illustrations complement this text.

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.

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.
This is a great non-fiction picture book about polar bears. We read it to complement our history lesson about the Northern Native Americans in North America.

Love this series and Nicola Davies is such an amazing author of the information story book. My students were spellbound listening to this story and it inspired many questions.

"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
