Baby Polar Bear is one of the latest releases in the Nature Baby series by the prolific wildlife writer and photographer team, Aubrey Lang and Wayne Lynch. In Baby Polar Bear, basic facts and the life cycle of the polar bear are beautifully depicted in simple text and fabulous colour photographs of polar bears and other arctic animals. The appeal of polar bears to children and the plight of polar bears so much in the news today due to the effects of climate change, make this a timely addition to the collections of classrooms and school libraries. Other titles in the Nature Babies series include: The Adventure of Baby Bear, Baby Penguin, Baby Seal, Baby Fox, Baby Elephant, Baby Lion, Baby Owl, Baby Ground Squirrel, Baby Koala and Baby Sloth.
