Kali's Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue by Jennifer Keats Curtis with photography by John Gomes

Hardcover ISBN: 9781628552089, $17.95
Paperback ISBN: 9781628552171, $9.95
Kali's Story is an absolutely delightful, sweet story of the rescue of a three-month-old polar bear cub whose mother had died. From the very onset of the kind man rescuing Kali to his adoption by the Buffalo Zoo, the pictures and text take the young reader through rescue, care, play, and needs that his rescuers and "foster home" provide. 

The reader learns that the cub can't drink from a bowl, but needs a bottle. That he needs play time and his care givers provide romps in the snow. That he needs to learn the survival skill of swimming. The photography captures moments endearing and informative.

I can recommend this delightful book to home, public, and school libraries. It is a delightful companion book to Polar Bears and Penguins previously reviewed here on ACS Reader's Haven Reviews.
