The Polar Bear from the New York Times Best Illustrated picture book returns to greet the morning!

On a chill, bright morning, a polar bear cub awakes inside her cozy den. She hears the seagulls' faraway calls and clambers out into the day.

Suddenly a snowy something tumbles down a little snow hill. She sees a snowy face, snowy paws, and snowy fur. What can it be?

Thrilling words and glowing pictures make this morning-time tale of first friendship as satisfying as a warm hug.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Polar Bear Morning

"Polar Bear Morning, like its predecessor, is a real charmer . . . The words, which tell a modest story of burgeoning friendship and two bears swept along by childhood exploration, join in buoyant harmony with Savage's soft lines and gentle forms." —The New York Times Book Review

"[A] fitting companion to Thompson and Savage's award-winning 2004 collaboration, Polar Bear Night." —USA Today

*"Savage's linocuts, with their round shapes and creamy sunrise palette of pinks and blues, are once again showstoppers . . . while Thompson's restrained prose conveys plenty about the pleasures of companionship." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

*"This companion to Polar Bear Night (2004) is as charming and attractive as its predecessor . . . It's crystal clear, this is another winner." —Kirkus, starred review
