Face to Face with Polar Bears PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Face to Face with Polar Bears free pdf Readers will be as captivated as Norbert is by the charm and playfulness of these bears. The skin underneath the clear hair of their white fur is a surprising black. A favourite meal is a seal, which they often pull out of seal breathing holes in the ice. Norbert's detailed knowledge of the polar bear is framed through his adventures in the wild. Once his camp was attacked by a polar bear with a toothache, and he had to be rescued by helicopter. He's had his tires slashed by a polar bear, almost became a polar bear lunch when his truck became stuck in a snowdrift, and nearly lost his fingertips to frostbite. But he keeps returning to the beautiful Arctic landscape to the company of his favorite animal. Polar bears are suffering from a changing climate. As the Earth warms, polar bears are finding it harder to survive - many have been found drowned as pack ice has melted more quickly than expected, and many are going hungry due to shorter hunting time on the ice. The plight of the polar bear helps kids connect a concrete consequence with global warming, and Norbert Rosing offers suggestions on what they can do to help. As with each "Face to Face" book, helpful and accessible back matter especially designed for report writers includes a facts at a glance section, a conservation feature, a science inquiry exercise, a glossary, an index, and how to find out more.
