Face to Face with Polar Bears by Norbert Rosing

Book Description

The ferocious, snarling beast closing in on you fast has a toothache. In the white wastelands of the Arctic, there is nowhere to hide. "Where" is that helicopter? Despite surviving this nightmare, award-winning photographer Norbert Rosing loves the charming, playful side of the polar bear. Yes, they slashed his tires, but mankind is now ruining their climate and environment. Surely the bears' anger is understandable. Rosing's book connects children with the consequences of global warming, and gives practical advice on how to help save our white-furred friends.

An essential introduction to the North's most spectacular species.

Face to Face with Polar Bears by Norbert Rosing Face to Face with Polar Bears, Paperback (August 2009)

Polar bears are suffering from a changing climate. As the Earth warms, polar bears are finding it harder to survive - many have been found drowned as pack ice has melted more quickly than expected, and many are going hungry due to shorter hunting time on the ice. This book offers kids suggestions on what they can do to help.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » In this attractive addition to a new series featuring animals in the wild, a veteran photographer describes the polar bears he studies, including information about habits, physical characteristics, child-rearing practices and their endangered environment. Opening with a suspenseful encounter with a bear with a toothache, the smoothly written text complements striking photographs, some close-up and some showing bears in their usual habitat. Sidebars describing staying warm in the Arctic and hunting like a bear help the young reader connect. Like other books in the series, the text stresses the effects of environmental changes on these vulnerable animals. Although the writer follows the usual practice of calling the polar bear a marine mammal, readers may be confused by text in a sidebar calling it a "land predator" and a caption referring to "land carnivores." As a follow-up, there are suggestions for how young readers can help bears and how they might research and photograph them along with two pages of fast facts. Pair with Dorothy Hinshaw Patent's A Polar Bear Biologist at Work (2001) for slightly older readers. (glossary, bibliography, index) (Nonfiction. 7-10) (Kirkus Reviews)
