Book Review: The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett

Good morning book review fans, Zebee here. Today I'm going to share a book with all of you that my boss Joy just finished reading to us. It's called "The Three SnowBears."

Do you know the story of Goldilocks? This is Goldilocks with a twist. This story takes place in Alaska with a little girl named Aloo-ki. She's an Inuit eskimo. She's out fishing with her sled dogs one day when the dogs drift away from her on a piece of the ice that's melting. On her hunt for them, she comes across an igloo and can't resist going inside to check it out. I'm not going to tell you any more, you'll have to read it for yourself.

The artwork in Jan's books is always beautiful. She illustrates the story, but on the sides of the main illustratoins she has other pictures of things that are going on as well. Like in this book, the main pictures show you what A;oo-ki is doing and the side pictures show you what the bears and sled dogs are doing. I really like that. There's so much to see on each page.

Our polar bears Cindy and Clide, really liked the book. Cindy wants a coat like mama snow bear's.

Okay, so where can you buy this beautiful book?

That's all for today. Oh, go visit your local library, you never know what you might find there!

Bye until Sunday!
