Item description for Snowy White World to Save by Alex Walton Lisa Tara...
It s a headline we all have seen: Global warming is melting the Arctic. Once the Arctic sea ice has vanished, the majestic polar bear, a magnificent creature who needs the sea ice to survive will vanish, too. The ice is home to the bears, as well as to their primary food source, the ringed seal. Polar bears feed, mate, travel, den, and give birth on the ice. Some scientists say polar bears will be extinct within fifty years if something isn t done, and soon.

Great for Exposing Young Kids to Global Warming Problems. Dec 13, 2007
Doesn't frighten kids but really great at telling very young kids the story of the desperate Polar Bear mother and cubs to find food and their changing world. Also has a page that lets kids be pro-active by just doing small things they can control. The illustration is beautiful and it's a good size book. Great gift for kids and for teachers, Pre-k and Kindergardeners, to help spread the global warming awareness.
Global warming's effects as shown to children Nov 20, 2007
Reviewed by Diane Snyder
Snowy White World to Save addresses the issue of global warming and the affects on one bear family as their world of ice and snow begins to melt.
In a simple rhyme, the story of a typical day in the polar bear family's life is told but the beauty of their world disappears as the ice melts and food is no longer available. The bears are forced to seek out garbage dumps for things to eat.
This is a beautifully illustrated 10×13 inch book in cool whites, grays and blue colors that projects the pristine world of the Arctic animals. However, the plight of the bear and her cubs are illustrated in a sad and jarring contrast of browns and reds as they forage for food in the human settlement.
If you are a responsible parent interested in the environment, ecology and the future of the earth and if you are trying to instill that interest and responsibility in your children, this is a book that will help. There is a section in the book that gives children a list of the things they can do to help keep our planet healthy and some web site sources for the adults to explore. What a wonderful and gentle way to introduce to our children their responsibility to the earth and its environment.
Stephanie Lisa Tara has garnered literary praise for her previous children's books, and I feel certain Snowy White World to Save will also receive the attention it deserves.
