The Bear Report is a wonderful picture book about a young girl who has to do a report on Polar Bears. Sophie thinks Polar Bears are boring...until one an named Olafur appears in her living room and carries her off to his home in the Artic. There Sophie and Olafur tour the sights of Olafur's home and have some adventures along the way. It is Sophie, using skills Olafur taught her earlier in the day that gets them out of danger so they can enjoy the northern lights before Sophie returns to her home. This story does an excellent job of portraying life for Polar Bears and will instill a sense of wonder and fascination in young children.
