I am a second grade teacher. This book doesn't stay on my classroom library shelf! The kids love it! I bought this book because the pictures were wonderful, but after reading it I also fell in love with the story. This is perfect for a read aloud, bedtime story and any other occasion! I can't recommend it enough!

Format: Paperback
I love to use this book with my kindergarten students because it tells them how scary it can be to try something new. The little polar bear can't learn how to swim right away, an experience they might already have had themselves. When he tries, and tries, and finally is swimming on his own - my audience cheers for him! They're all clapping by the end of the story!
The pictures are very engaging and warm. Lots of love and support is given by the mother polar bear as we see the little bear struggle with his insecurities.
The triumph at the end is well-written.
I use it as a take home book in a story bag with a stuffed polar bear, artist pad, and markers. The children share the story at home and then write their own story to share the next day at school. They illustrate the story and sign their name to their work. It's a great story extension.

My daughter and I read this while learning about polar bears, but this is a great book for any kid struggling with something new (potty training, starting school, even swimming!). It's about how discouraged the polar bear feels while he's trying to learn, but there are details about how Mom feels too, like feeling so tired and being sad that she doesn't know how to help. After recently going through these feelings with potty training, my voice caught a little when I read, "If I don't learn to swim, will you still love me?" This is a great book for parents and kids to read together.
