From writer Robert Burleigh and illustrator Wendell Minor, an award-winning and bestselling picture book team, comes a gripping climate change–themed tale of a polar bear family fighting to survive.

It is March in the cold North. The long-gone sun is rising.

Silvery ice glitters. Snow sparkles in the hazy glow.

Two polar bears stand at ice edge: mother and cub.

A mother polar bear and her cub are busy searching for food, when suddenly, the ice they stand on breaks away—crack! Cut adrift, her cub is out of reach as the treacherous sea begins to carry him away. In she dives! Can they return to land safely?

Simply told yet dramatic, and with realistic, exquisite illustrations and informative back matter with facts about polar bears, Ice Bears at Ice Edge immerses readers in one animal family’s story, while also highlighting the broader plight of endangered wildlife whose habitats are threatened by climate change.
