The Three Snow Bears - by Jan Brett
The Goldilocks story takes a fine twist when an endearing snow bear family and a curious Inuit girl meet center stage in Jan Brett's stunning paintings of a land where the Intuits and the animals share the amazing Arctic landscape. When Aloo-ki loses her sled dogs, her search for them leads her to an igloo. She can't resist peeking inside...and then she can't resist the smell of something delicious... While Aloo-ki is making herself at home, Papa, Mama and Baby Bear are out walking, waiting for their breakfast to cool off...and who do you think they find? In the borders, playful Arctic animals in parkas inspired by original Inuit designs have a mischievous time as the lively story bounces back and forth between the snow bears and Aloo-ki until they come face-to-face. Ages 4 & up. Hardcover.
