This magical portrait reads more like a poem or a picture book. It's full of information and it speaks with authority to the reader. A great book for reading aloud to 5 to 8 year olds. A joy to read and incredibly educational.
An excellent book - a good combination of a story and also facts about polar bears and the planet. I am also on teacher training and this would be an excellent tool for a variety of age groups. Amazon have recently altered their packaging which sadly meant this book turned up a bit bent.....not so great!
Although I had to make up an entirely new story for my daughter aged 28 months at the time of the purchase, she loved this book and the illustrations of polar bears. The first-hand narrative was not suited for her age, I think, but children over 4-5 will probably enjoy this book on their own.
