World of the Polar Bear by Norbert Rosing
Book DescriptionThis work is the culmination of more than 20 years' study and observation from one of the world's leading natural history photographers. Standing 10 feet tall on its hind legs, reaching more than 700kg and renowned for its singular ferociousness, the Polar Bear reigns in the North. It survives on the starkly beautiful arctic tundra, and with its tapered profile, tufted ears, snowy white coat, and coal-black eyes and nose, the Polar Bear is arrestingly photogenic. World-renowned nature photographer Norbert Rosing takes us through the year of the polar bear showing us that the animal is not only a fierce predator, but also a loving parent and a natural jester. His engaging photogaphs and informative text invite us into a world that few ever see and which is increasingly under threat. 'Through summer and sunsets, spring and snow, Rosing shows us a glimpse of this beautiful harsh world and the magnificent animals that inhabit it.' Daily Express 'Stunning images by a world class photographer The key selling point - "the most beautiful and comprehensive book on the market" - would seem to be a just claim.' Publishing News 'This is not only a superb portrait of one of the world's most fascinating animals, but also testament to [Norbert Rosing's] abilities as a photographer.' BBC Wildlife

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.
