The Ice Bear


I suspect this is the kind of book that parents would really like their kids to like, even though most kids - including the ones I read it to - would way rather hear a story about crazy characters standing on their heads. There isn't much intrinsic to the book that will immediately hook a child - no wacky family members, no scaredy animals or talking toys. But seeing as the book is Mozart quality in a world of Justin Biebers, maybe it's worth the persistence in order to get a child interested.

So grown-ups, break out a reference to the Coca-Cola-swilling polar bear or to televised dogsled racing - whatever helps a child put out a fingerling of appreciation toward this lovely book will certainly pay off. KRISTINE CAMPBELL
