“Snugs The Snow Bear” is the first in a magical series of stories about a lovable, snuggable, huggable polar bear, and his tales of derring-do, along with a menagerie of animal friends. Come and meet Snugs, The Two Moose, Mrs Merryweather, Carla and James, as they take the voyage of a lifetime to a lighthouse on The Isle of Wight, a sunshine island off the South Coast of England, and miles and miles beyond! This first adventure will warm your heart as Snugs, in his own unique way, leaves a radiant, magical impression, especially on one little boy and girl.”
Snugs is a polar bear who floats away from home on a small iceberg. As his journey and story evolves, more magical animals are woven into the narrative. I liked how the reality (Northern Lights, etc.) and the magical portion blended so well. This adventure fit Snugs to a T. A few words were more than a younger child could understand, but this enables children the ability to speak with their parents, librarian, etc. on areas they don’t understand fully. Amid the narrative, some illustrations are found, and they are cute. A huge mistake that I must comment about is the fact that the narrative related the twelve days of Christmas being the twelve days leading up to Christmas Day, when, in fact, the twelve days of Christmas are the twelve days after Christmas Day. For this reason alone, I must give Snugs the Snow Bear four stars. If at some point the story is edited and corrected regarding the twelve days of Christmas, I will revise to five stars.
When we finished it they wanted to read it again so yes I would definitely recommend this book to everybody
If only Snugs had known that his iceberg was melting … perhaps he would have stayed in Santa Claus’ Magical Greenland? Snugs loves the beautiful Northern Lights but now he is cold and lonely and his iceberg is melting and drifting far away from home. What will happen to Snugs? Come with me and let us find out!
Snugs is a lovely bear you just want to cuddle and hold. The story starts with Snugs, sitting on that iceberg floating away from his home. Is it Snugs’ own doing? Although he feels very lonely, he loves to have adventures. The book wants to capture everything: the loveable snow bear, environmental issues, interesting facts about the places Snugs visits. However admirable this is, sometimes the information gets ‘snowed under’ (had to use the metaphor) by not fully explaining them on a child’s level. For instance, when Crystal uses a ‘recyclable paper bag’ we learn what it means but Snug then uses the term ‘Eco-friendly’. I can imagine a child not understanding why an item is addressed by two different names.
Having said that, I heartily commend the idea of making children aware of the environment and how to help, even on their level. We can all make an impact, however small, it is important that children grow up appreciating nature and respecting others and the environment. Snugs the Snow Bear shows children how to make a difference and contribute to protecting our earth by, for instance, exchanging goods for goods. That is very admirable and the message is brought to the children in a lovely, playful manner, which is great. The awesome colourful drawings enhance the lovely feel of this delightful book! Perfect for five- to nine-year-olds. Just one more thing: I love the ending.
