This book is the cutest book I have ever seen!! I stood in front of the bookshelf and read it in the bookstore. The pictures are very nicely taken and absolutely adorable. I was gushing over every other page; this polar bear is cute! The story is heartwarming and a good read. I'd buy it just for the pictures (and I will be buying it soon!) Honestly, if you are having a bad day, just read or flip through this book; I guarantee a smile will pop up soon.

This book has been a big hit with the children in our family. My niece's granddaughter took it to preschool to share it with her classmates and my nephew-in-law's son took it to bed with him as well as to preschool to share the wonder and magic of precious Knut with his classmates! It is a beautiful, wholesome true story that the whole family can enjoy.

Format: Hardcover
Grade school children will be absolutely enthralled with the story of an baby polar bear no bigger than a snowball! Knut lives in Germany in a zoo, and he was lucky enough to meet Thomas who helped raise him.
Thomas fed Knut with a bottle, just like a human baby. He even taught him how to swim.

Knut was so cute and his story so amazing that he won the hearts of people all over the world, and now young readers can learn about him with this book that tells all about him. This is an excellent true story told beautifully with wonderful photographs to enhance the tale.

What a beautiful example of nonfiction for children to love!

Format: Hardcover
"Knut" tells the story of a little polar bear cub, abandoned by his mother, and then raised by a human surrogate. The pictures grab attention - from the librarian who checked it out, to the rest of my family. Knut is a great ambassador for polar bears and their fate. Other sources tell how he reached 243 lbs. by his first birthday and had to be put on a diet, and now the Berlin Zoo is now looking for a new home for Knut.

Like many people across the globe, I was captivated by the story of Knut. So naturally when I discovered the book about the cutest little bear ever, I had to get it! The story is touching and the photographs are wonderful. I highly recommend this book to animal lovers, people with children and anyone who just enjoys a great true story!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What a beautiful book! Im only sad that l purchased it after Knut passed away in the Berlin Zoo. I keep it on my glass coffee table and many of my guests pick it up and read it from cover to end and get comments from each of them "What a gorgeous little bear, what a beautiful book"

Thank you Amazon for sending me this book that l will always treasure. I am in Melbourne Australia and received my package only a few days after l placed my order. It travelled thousands of miles across the world to get to me and arrived in perfect condition. A must read book particularly if you love wildlife. A beautifully written book about a polar bear that defied the odds and became the worlds best loved polar bear. May you rest in peace beautiful bear.

Knut is the little polar bear that stole the world's heart, and you can see why with the beautiful photos in this book. If your child love animals and especially polar bears, they will be sure to love it. Be sure to check out the little polar bear books by Han de Beer too!
