The Snow Bear.
Stafford, Liliana THE SNOW BEAR. Il. by Lambert Davis. ISBN 0-439-26977-6. New York: Scholastic, 2001. Unp. $15.95. Feeding a snow bear in bear jail can't hurt ... or can it? In this enlightening story, Bruun discovers that feeding the snow bear only makes her want to stay in town, away from her natural habitat. Bruun must coax the bear to follow him onto the sea-ice. A blizzard traps Bruun, and so the bear takes him in as one of her cubs until he's old enough to live independently. Hunters find Bruun and return him to his family for an emotional homecoming. Will a grown-up Bruun remember his snow bear's kindness, or will he take up hunting? Ages 5-9. Reviewed by Amy S. Easter, Brandywine Heights Area School District, PA
