"Our people, the Inuit, call it NANUK. White bear, ice bear, sea bear, others say. It's a bear, all right, but not like any other! It's a POLAR BEAR, made for our frozen world!"
We have become very interested in polar bears in our house. This book, Ice Bear: In the Steps of the Polar Bear by Nicola Davies, was the perfect story for us. It brought the polar bear to life for us. It helped us to learn about and be amazed by this magnificent and powerful, yet gentle creature.
For painting day, we did wet-on-wet watercolors. We then cut our painted paper into icicle shapes and strung them up with yarn.
