Synopsis

Baby Polar by Yannick Murphy

Baby Polar loves cuddling up with Mama Polar - until the snow starts to fall. Then he wants to play! He loves catching the tasty flakes on his tongue and zigzagging across the ice. When the winds begin to gust and the snow becomes a blizzard, Baby Polar knows it's time to go back to his mother. But now the whole world is covered in white. Where could Mama Polar be? This tender, lyrical story with vibrant collage illustrations perfectly captures the excitement and wonder of a young child's first independent adventure.

Reviews

This winning tale of mother and child is sweetly circular. The simple text is replete with warmth, humor and gentle suspense; every Baby Polar or child will find something to appreciate here. --Kirkus Reviews Despite the Arctic chill, it's a cozy vision of family. --Publishers Weekly
