Polar Bears on the Hunt by Meg Marquardt - ADVISABLE

Marquardt, Meg Polar Bears on the Hunt, 32 pages.  NON-FICTION.  Lerner, 2018.  $20. Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

This book presents concise information on polar bears such as hunting, habitat, adaptations and behavior. It features bright well-chosen pictures, interesting layouts, and lots of fun facts.

This book could easily be used for a report for 3-5 graders. I particularly like to for its cover appeal –readers who want to read about scary or tough animals will love this book, though it really has a well-balanced amount of information on all aspects of the polar bear. Additionally it covers loss of habitat, which is a huge issue for polar bears today and it may not be addressed in books already on your shelves.
