Happy Birthday!

My youngest turns 11 today.  She is an avid reader... "Please, just five more minutes, let me finish this chapter..."  Lights out at 8:30 tends to stretch a bit on nights dad is home and mom is at work. 

She has read every polar bear book in her school library (and most of the tiger books, rabbit books, etc. as well).  And, there are a lot!  In honor of her 11th birthday, here are eleven of her favorites polar bear books (which are from her private collection, housed safely on the polar bear shelf in her bedroom):

Little Polar Bear by de Beer, Hans

The Life Cycle of a Polar Bear by Bobbie Kalman

Klondike & Snow: The Denver Zoo's Remarkable Story 
of Raising Two Polar Bear Cubs

 God Gave Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren 

 Snow Bear by Piers Harper

Ice Bear: In the Steps of the Polar Bear by Nicola Davies  

I Love You with All My Heart by Noris Kern

 Polar Bears: Animal Predators by Sandra Markle 

Ice Bears by Brenda Z. Guiberson 

The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett

Just One More Swim by Caroline Pitcher and Jenny Jones

  1. Love the collection and the variety. Love that she loves polar bears and reads any book about them. My youngest is 10 today! She would love all of these books. Sounds like our two girls would be good friends if they lived close!
