Polar Bear Math

Polar Bear Math: Learning About Fractions from Klondike and Snow
by Ann Nagda
illustrated by Cindy Bickel

Klondike and Snow are two polar bears that were born at the Denver Zoo and will need a lot of tender loving care from the zoo staff, as they have been abandoned by their mother.

This title tells the story of the first year of their life and uses fractions to talk about their growth and about how the staff fed and care for the two little bears.  

School Library Journal ended their review by saying, "This thoroughly enjoyable offering has many worth- while features, and teachers and children alike can make good use of it."
