Arctic Animals Come to Life with Polly and the North Star

{Read Around the World Summer Reading Series}

This beautiful picture book is a favorite of my boys (3 and 4 1/2 years-old). With beautiful, dreamy artwork and a lovely story of one girl's big imagination and even bigger love for her father, it is a wonderful way to begin to explore the Arctic with your children. They will enjoy meeting polar bears, caribou, snowy oils and grey wolves with Polly and will share her joy when her father returns back home safely after working to help these amazing creatures. I think your children or students will love this book as much as my boys do. I recommend it for ages 2-6. 

To explore these animals even more, check out Mother Nature Network or this Arctic Animals Photo Gallery from National Geographic
