Polar Bear Night - Lauren Thompson and Stephen Savage

Polar Bear Night
Lauren Thompson
Stephen Savage (Illustrator)
ISBN 9780439495240
ISBN 9780545485586

I first read this book a few years ago with my middle child. Now my youngest has picked it up and it instantly became one of her favourites.  Both my children love the subtle illustrations. And the story.

There are two editions of this book, a board book and a picture book. The story follows a little female bear cub who wakes up and takes a stroll from her den. She walks at night she sees all her favourite things, seals, whales, and then she notices shooting stars. The night puts on a wonderful show for her.

As a family we love the story and adore the illustrations. Stephen Savage's illustrations are wonderful. The subtlety in the shading and the limited pallet used really enhance the book.
