Follow an adorable little polar bear cub as she grows and learns about life in the Arctic.

"A science primer for the youngest environmentalists." --Kirkus

In the frigid Arctic, a polar bear is born, white and fluffy, with thick fur to protect her from the cold. This fourth book in the popular series--which includes the award-winning Tiger's Story--accompanies the little cub as she plays with her brother, learns how to hunt, grows up, and finally goes off on her own. Through beautiful art and a poetic, fact-filled story, younger children will learn about how these animals live, and the challenges they face as climate change affects their environment and ability to find food.
