The Bear Report by Thyra Heder

She needs to write three things about polar bears.  She chooses:  They are big; they eat things; they are mean.  Then she goes in to watch TV...

Abrams sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It is now available so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

The illustrations are lovely.  You feel like you're right there with the bear.  You see, when she looks up from the TV she finds a polar bear sitting in the overstuffed chair next to her.  He tells her that they are not ALL mean and takes her to see his world.

This is a charming story with the bear as the star.  She hangs out with him for a day and learns all kinds of things about polar bears.  Once she gets back home, she expands her report about bears.

Here's an easy way for children to learn about them.  You want to see what they're going to do next.  Wait until you see his version of fish sticks!  It's a bit educational, but it's great fun, too.  I'm sure children will read this one more than once.
