Lost and Found

PreS-Gr 2–This wordless picture book depicts the story of a young Indigenous girl who stumbles across a starving and weakened polar bear. She offers the bear a fish and her blanket (though it’s much too small for such a big bear). Thankful for her generosity, the bear guides her through a snowstorm safely back to her home. The landscape illustrations are dazzling, though the pages of the bear and girl in the snow are the highlight of this book. Art teachers will covet it for its illustrations and the use of the white page, which effectively give a sense of just how much snow the bear and the girl are experiencing.
VERDICT Purchase wherever wordless picture books are popular.
