Waiting for Ice by Sandra Markle - ADVISABLE

Markle, Sandra, Waiting for Ice, Charlesbridge, 2012. $15.95. Content: G. Picture book.   
An orphaned polar bear struggles to find food.  Without a mother to feed her, this young polar bear must fend for herself against other bears that are bigger and stronger.  And food is hard to find: due to rising global temperatures. This book is based on a true story of an orphaned polar bear.  

 It has a unique way of teaching about environmental changes through a touching story of an orphaned polar cub.  This book would be a great introduction in teaching a unit on global warming and the effects it has on the animals.
