Description

Baby Polar loves cuddling up with Mama Polar--until the snow starts to fall. Then he wants to play! He loves catching the tasty flakes on his tongue and zigzagging across the ice. When the winds begin to gust and the snow becomes a blizzard, though, Baby Polar knows it's time to go back to his mother. But now the whole world is covered in white. Where could Mama Polar be?

Award-winning author Yannick Murphy's tender, lyrical story and acclaimed artist Kristen Balouch's vibrant collage illustrations perfectly capture the excitment and wonder of a young child's first independent adventure.
