Comments for Polar Bear Night

Polar Bear Night: 11/28/11

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)Polar Bear Night by Lauren Thompson and illustrated by Stephen Savage is the story of a polar bear cub who can't sleep through the long winter night. While mother bear rests, the cub leaves the den and explores the area seeing seals, a snow storm and the aurora borealis.

Satisfied with his night time adventure, the little bear returns home to snuggle again with his mother. Children who are beginning to test their own boundaries and are discovering the fun of exploring around their own homes will relate to this curious cub.

Stephen Savage uses cool, dark shades of blues, violets and greens to create the feel of the long dark night. The stars, ice and snow and the little cub in their light colors sparkle against the surroundings. The illustrations are soothing.

Four stars
