Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4. Lovely acrylic paintings accompany this informative and lyrical text that focuses on a mother polar bear and her two cubs. The blue-gray palette perfectly evokes the frozen and forbidding landscape that the animals travel through after leaving their snug winter den. Polar bear diet, habitat, and parenting behavior are smoothly integrated into the satisfying narrative. Miller's focus on the cubs and their interaction with their mother adds an important dimension to the story. This title is more informative than Joanne Ryder's White Bear, Ice Bear (Morrow, 1989), though the style of illustration is remarkably similar. Thor Larsen's fine Polar Bear Family Book (North-South, 1996) is for older readers. Libraries that have both of these titles might want to add copies of A Polar Bear Journey instead of replacing the Ryder book. Collections needing a well-written nonfiction book will find this a useful purchase.?Ellen M. Riordan, Enoch Pratt Free Library, Baltimore, MD

More About the Author

Debbie S. Miller grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. She loved climbing trees, watching animals, and hiking in wild places such as Yosemite National Park. The natural world inspired her to write at a young age. After obtaining her teaching degree, Debbie moved to Alaska with her husband, Dennis. The call of the wild beckoned them from the freeways of California.

For the past 35 years, Debbie has loved exploring the wilds of Alaska and studying its great diversity of wildlife. Alaska has been the foundation and inspiration for all of her writing. Her first wilderness adventure book, Midnight Wilderness (Sierra Club Books, 1990) describes the wonders and natural history of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge based on 14 years of explorations. Many of her nature books for children, such as Survival at 40 Below (Walker, 2010) have been recognized as Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children by the National Science Teachers Association and Children's Book Council (NSTA/CBC).

Debbie enjoys speaking in schools across Alaska and America, sharing her books and programs with teachers and students of all ages. She also likes traveling to other wild regions of the world, such as Australia, where she recently studied some fascinating marsupials, reptiles, and birds.

Alaska will always be a home that Debbie cherishes along with her two grown, beautiful daughters who still enjoy hiking, fishing and camping with her.

This is a lovely, well-written story that incorporates accurate information about the lives of polar bears. Beautifully illustrated, it is a great read aloud book for children as young as 3 or 4.
