Polar Bear Morning
Written by Lauren Thompson; illustrated by Stephen Savage
Synopsis from Scholastic Canada:
On a chill, bright morning, a polar bear cub awakes inside her cozy den. She hears the seagulls’ faraway calls and clambers out into the day. Suddenly a snowy something tumbles down a little snow hill. She sees a snowy face, snowy paws, and snowy fur. What can it be? Thrilling words and glowing pictures make this morning-time tale of first friendship as satisfying as a warm hug.
There’s something special about a young child’s openess and acceptance when it comes to those around them. They don’t prejudge but rather view each encounter as a new friendship in the making. That’s the story of Polar Bear Morning. It’s a simple tale based on the act of simple friendship. The uncomplicated colour block images add to the straightforward nature of the way friendship unfolds for Polar Bear.
