9780152006679: Great Crystal Bear

Blending poetic language and scientific fact, Carolyn Lesser explores how one magnificent bear lives throughout the year. Impressionistic paintings follow the bear as he hunts, swims, plays, and journeys in the far north. “Lyrical in tone and accurate in zoological detail, the narrative is ideal for one-on-one sharing.”--School Library Journal

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3?This prose poem about the life of a polar bear is in perfect artistic harmony with its dramatic illustrations. Full- and double-page spreads in arctic white and blue capture the sweep of the northern landscape, with only the golden-tinged giant bear and his prey, the brown seal, to add a touch of warmth to the rugged, cold beauty. The beautifully designed watercolors are naturalistic but done with an idealized softness that suits the poetic mood of the text as it describes the bear's solitary life from season to season. Moving through the star-studded, snowflake-spangled winter darkness, stalking softly on huge paws across the ice, curling snugly in a bed of snow, arrowing through turquoise waters, or looming purposefully above an unwary seal, the great crystal bear exists in a raw, hard, dangerous world that is awesome and majestic, as well. For emphasis and variety, the poem is printed in white on dark backgrounds and black on the lighter ones. Lyrical in tone and accurate in zoological detail, the narrative is ideal for one-on-one sharing.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
