-Fantasy: Picture Book Humor, Cultural, Warmhearted
-George, Jean C. Snow Bear. Illus by Wendell Minor. Scholastic, 2000, Unp, Primary

-Snow bear is a warmhearted tale that follows Bessie, Vincent, Nanuq, and Snow Bear on a whimsical adventure in the Alaskan Arctic. Through repetitive words of wisdom and the silliness of two innocent and curious younglings, this incredibly realistically illustrated story makes me feel good inside.
-Keywords: Polar bear, Sedges, Lemmings, Arctic, Ice ship
-Activity: Have students organize a play where students act out scenes from the book or create their own Arctic adventure storyline. Have students create Arctic themed backgrounds for play.

I read this book as a teenager and loved it. I was fascinated by the animal body language and the details have stuck with me, all these years later. One of these days I'd like to revisit it with an adult perspective.
