My daughter loves reading books about animals. While my kids and I go to the library frequently, I also have a sizeable collection of children’s books at home. Polar bears are a favorite animal that my kids and I love to see at the zoo. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review A Kid’s Guide to Polar Bears by Daniel Haley in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the chance to add a new book about the arctic animal to my home library.
A Kid’s Guide to Polar Bears by Daniel Haley currently retails for $8.99 on Amazon. The paperback book with 28 pages is comparably priced to other nonfiction children’s books of similar length. I thus rate the price of this book positively.
Among the many creatures in the animal kingdom, most children usually love bears of all kinds. A Kid’s Guide to Polar Bears introduces children between the ages of 4 and 6 to the arctic-dwelling polar bear. My daughter has been reading fairly independently for the past few months. She started learning to read last fall but can already pick up books for her reading level and read on her own. She was able to pick up this children’s book and figure out most of the words on her own. The larger font is also perfect for younger students who are still learning to read. I therefore agree with the recommended age range of 4 to 6 years old.
“Polar bears live in a part of the Earth called the Arctic Circle,” begins A Kid’s Guide to Polar Bears. The book is chockfull of interesting and age-appropriate information about polar bears. Young readers will learn how big polar bears are, where the animals lives, and how the creatures survive in the freezing cold arctic. My daughter loves learning about animals of all sorts, and she really loved learning more about polar bears with this fun and informative nonfiction children’s book. I rate the text and information extremely highly for young readers.
Both my kids love the photographic illustrations in A Kid’s Guide to Polar Bears. The photos in this children’s books are absolutely gorgeous! Each page is filled with pictures of real polar bears, many in the wild. My kids and I love watching the polar bears at the zoo, so seeing this majestic animal in more natural habitats is super fun. When I asked my daughter what she thought about the pictures, she replied, “I like them. I like everything in the book!” My toddler son also enjoys looking at the pictures. He loves pointing at the animals on each page. I therefore rate the illustrations in this nonfiction children’s book extremely highly.
If you are searching for a nonfiction book about polar bears for children between the ages of 4 and 6, I highly recommend checking out A Kid’s Guide to Polar Bears by Daniel Haley. The book is chockfull of interesting and age-appropriate information about polar bears that younger children will love. My preschooler daughter, who is well on her way to reading independently, can read most of the words in the book by herself, so the text is perfect for early readers. The larger font makes reading the book especially easy for younger students. The photographic illustrations are absolutely gorgeous! If your kiddos love polar bears too, definitely give A Kid’s Guide to Polar a read!
