What's Ice Bear About

Publisher Summary

Back in a time when people and animals lived together in harmony, a bear-child is stolen away from his mother. A hunter and his wife find the child and, wrapping him in sealskin, they sing him songs of the ice, the wind and the great white bears. One day the child wanders off and a bear comes to take him back to his mother. But by now the hunter is on the trail, determined to kill the creature that has taken his child. Set in the pristine polar regions of the Arctic, Jackie Morris’s beautiful story reminds us that we are caretakers of these wild creatures and our actions directly affect their future.To listen to a reading of Ice Bear click here

What Kind of Book is Ice Bear

Quotes from Ice Bear

  • “He could smell the storm coming, the scent of snow on the knife-edge of the wind.”
  • “A piece of amber, smoothed by the oceans, coloured clear and beautiful, like a fragment of fire, washed ashore from a far-off place.”
  • “He saw where the amber had fallen, and his heart cracked like summer lice. He stood alone in the white land and made a promise to the memory of the child.”
