Book Description

March 1 2011
Back in a time when people and animals lived together in harmony, a bear-child is stolen away from his mother. A hunter and his wife find the child and, wrapping him in sealskin, they sing him songs of the ice, the wind and the great white bears. One day the child wanders off and a bear comes to take him back to his mother. But by now the hunter is on the trail, determined to kill the creature that has taken his child...

Set in the pristine polar regions of the Arctic, Jackie Morris's beautiful story reminds us that we are caretakers of these wild creatures and our actions directly affect their future.

Product Description


'intricate and beautiful' TES Selected in Top Ten Bear Picture Books: 'Jackie Morris is one of my favourite children's illustrators and storytellers, and The Ice Bear is one of her most beautiful stories. It has the timeless feel of all the best myths about it - the poetic, mystical story of the stolen polar bear cub who has to choose between his two families is wonderful in itself, but when combined with Jackie's detailed and exquisite paintings, it's a book to treasure forever.' The Guardian kids online

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! March 15 2012
By K teach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was purchased for my four year old grandson. He loves books, usually ones about vehicles or dinosaurs. In trying to expand his interests, I got The Ice Bear, a more realistic animal story. He loved it and "reads" it often! The illustrations are outstanding! Purchasing books through Amazon is so easy and inexpensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Wonderful Book by Jackie Morris Nov. 7 2012
By Vittoria de Artemisia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
'The Ice Bear' is a wonderful book, even for adults if you're young at heart. The illustrations are, as in all her books, astoundingly beautiful. The story, with its message that human actions impact the animals that share this planet with us, is well-written and easy for a child to understand, as well as being so enchanting that it will grab a child's attention (and an adult's attention) immediately. I bought this for my 7 year old niece and she adores it. And so do I!

5.0 out of 5 stars The wonder of this! Oct. 10 2012
By Pip - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not only is the story magical(and, yes, I believe) but the art work is just that--art. I have kept the book one a table in the livingroom so that I might open the book and gaze frequently at the beauty displayed there. The book also relates the wonder and spirituality of animals. Did I say I believe?

Jackie Morris is a favorite illustrator, and her depictions of bears are her forte.
Love this one as much as her East of the Sun and West of the Moon.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!!! Feb. 12 2013
By Good Books Only! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful, legend-like story created by an artist. The story is rendered much like a poem, but pulls the reader through the events in a very engaging way, like the best of prose always does. Buy this for your children, and buy it for yourself. It is a collection of beautiful paintings in addition to a wonderful story. Children's picture books should be works of art, like this. The Ice Bear shines!!!
