Polar bear babies wake up, learn to fish, swim, walk on the ice, and enjoy running. A mother polar bear tries to teach her two little cubs, but as one throws himself into learning how to swim, walk on ice, and fish, the other prefers to nap. This super-simple story about two polar bear cubs and what they learn from their mother is both adorable and informative. There's also plenty of humor: one of the "polar babies" throws himself into learning to swim, walk on ice, and fish, while the other always prefers to nap. This book is delightfully illustrated by the talented Lisa McCue.
