What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Perfect for Valentine’s Day and a heartwarming read for the cold winter months, this cozy animal story explores the universal theme of a mother’s love for her child. When a polar bear leaves the safety and warmth of her cave to travel all over a frozen wonderland, she must be looking for something very important. Could it be delicious silver salmon? A view of the swirling winter sky? A bit of gold? Of course, she is in search of the most precious thing of all: her lost little cub. In this touching story, readers will instantly be enamored with the sweeping illustrations of winter landscapes, endearing polar bear characters, and the resonant message that a mother’s love matters most.

The story of a mother braving the elements in search of her lost cub is simultaneously heartwarming (and a little heart wrenching if you’re a mom!) The entire story speaks to the comforting fact that if you’re lost, mom will always be looking for you, to bring you home and warm you up. The illustration style is bold and raw.
