It' s a big day for the little polar bear Lars! His father takes him hunting for the very first time, and that night he is so tired from all his lessons that he falls fast asleep. He sleeps so soundly that he doesn' t hear the ice crack, doesn' t feel himself slowly drift away from his father and the arctic-he doesn' t realise that his adventures have just begun. For more than thirty years Little Polar Bear has enchanted children and grown-ups around the world. NorthSouth Books is proud to partner with bi:libri in a new line of multilingual children' s books. On the heels of our bilingual Rainbow Fish editions comes Little Polar Bear (paperback), available in ten languages. Our program focuses on unique titles that address universal themes such as friendship, tolerance, and finding courage-bringing great stories and second-language learning fun to children around the world. A great way to introduce a second language to very young children whether they are English- or Japanese-speaking.
