Reading books with our grandchildren is a pleasure that creates memories for us and for them. Snuggling up while laughing and learning is something we hold dear to our hearts.
Polar Bears Aren’t White, You Know! is a delightful book written in rhyme. And the photography is quite incredible. Dr. Daniel D’Auria is both author and photographer. I have to wonder how close he was actually able to get to take such impressive photos of the majestic polar bears.
“Daniel D’Auria not only teaches young readers about the true coloring of polar bears in his children’s book, “Polar Bears Aren’t White, You Know!” he also brings attention to the plight of these unique, endangered creatures and other animals as a result of global climate change. Through the use of his own striking wildlife photography, D’Auria reveals a world little-seen by most, and one which he shows is fading fast.”
The easy-to-follow rhyming story takes young (and older) readers into the lives of polar bears living in Manitoba, Canada. D’Auria’s desire is to introduce children to the plight of the polar bear while teaching ecological responsibility. He does this in such a way that even the youngest child can understand.
Our grandchildren love Polar Bears Aren’t White, You Know! We read it over and over again and … the rhyming makes it easy for 6 year old Kennedy to read it to us!
More of Daniel D’Auria photos are on his website, LifeScapes Imaging. Daniel has also written a few other lovely books that we think you might enjoy.
