The Lovereading4Kids comment
Stunning illustrations capture the warm emotions of this magical story and juxtaposes them perfectly with the winter landscape of the white bears and the hunters who live in it. When Raven steals a white bear cub and delivers him to the hunter and his family as the human baby they long for, he sets up a future conflict between man and the bears. The child loves his life with his family but, when Raven leads him back to his bear brother, he falls in love with him too. How the bears and the humans learn to live together through their mutual love of the child tells a story which gently conveys some important messages about tolerance and understanding.
The Ice Bear by Jackie Morris
Back in a time when people and animals lived together in harmony, a bear-child is stolen away from his mother. A hunter and his wife find the child and, wrapping him in sealskin, they sing him songs of the ice, the wind and the great white bears. One day the child wanders off and a bear comes to take him back to his mother. But by now the hunter is on the trail, determined to kill the creature that has taken his child! Set in the pristine polar regions of the Arctic, Jackie Morris's beautiful story reminds us that we are caretakers of these wild creatures and our actions directly affect their future.
"The most breathaking book of the season must be The Ice Bear. Expressive illustrations draw the reader into a wintry landscape where a magical and unforgettable story is told." - The Bookseller.
