" Gorgeous illustrations of polar bears and their arctic environment; the story is a bit formal in tone and sounds kind of like a lecture. I’m wondering how the child would have told the tale. . . ? " said.

" Beautiful illustrations, lovely. I like the inventive way that this non fiction book is a dream for the little reader. A little meta with her inside the book and pages, but I think it's a great way to engage little readers and relate the information. " said.

" The illistrations were stunning and the information was excellent. However, I didn't care for the way the polar bear was anthropomorphized by the girl's presence. She got in the way and didn't really serve a purpose. " said.

" Such a cool nonfiction book! Not your typical animal nonfiction. This book puts in a twist by including the little girl who pulled this book off the shelf within the pages. The illustrations are a combination of whimsical and detailed. I loved it! " said.

" Beautiful illustrations, thick pages, and informative while remaining storylike in tone. My 5- and 2 1/2-year-olds enjoyed it, interrupting every now and again to ask follow-up questions (a sign that, even with a higher word count than usual, they were engaged). This is a lovely book for kids that are used to picture books and parents who want to start reading nonfiction with them. " said.

" When I first saw this, I was reminded of the Bear Report by Heder. It's longer and contains less fantasy and a ton of facts. I think students would love to read both books. In Desmond's Polar Bear, she compared bears to 7 year olds. I think it would be fun to group 20 first graders and say, "yup, there's a bear!" But I think the book would have to be broken up into a few days. It's a long read aloud, but a great resource for collecting facts about polar bears. " said.

" This is a nonfiction book, but it's set within the small story of a little girl reading a book about polar bears. The information contained in the book about polar bears is great, but what really sets this book apart are the illustrations. They're simply gorgeous, and every now and then the little girl reading the book about polar bears shows up in the illustrations, as if she's entered the world of the book she's reading. It takes what could be a dry nonfiction book to a sublime place. " said.

" Informative information about polar bears with beautiful illustrations. The book included some lesser know facts (for me, at least), like how females though mating in the spring won't become pregnant until fall and only if she has eaten enough to support a pregnancy. " said.
