The Snow Bear is written by Holly Webb and is a perfect story for the Christmas period.
In the story grandad and Sara build an igloo in the garden with a small snow bear to watch over it. Grandpa tells her stories of polar bears and they get all snowed in. Sara is sad she can’t get home to her mum who is expecting a baby. On waking one morning Sara wakes up and is completely in a new world of snow and ice and finds a little bear who needs to get to his mum too.
This book is filled with storytelling, family and adventure, snow, polar bears and a baby born at Christmas. It is rather lovely, a straightforward read but filled with wonder too.
