Little Polar Bear Take Me Home
Friendship makes all the difference in Hans de Beer’s beloved Little Polar Bear story.
While looking for a tasty snack, Lars, the little polar bear, meets Sasha, a lost, hungry, homesick Siberian tiger cub who had been on a journey to see the ocean. Lars is surprised that his friend travelled so far just to see the ocean. Lars sees it all the time. Always one to lend a hand, Lars offers to help his new friend. Lars and Sasha travel together through the forests, plains, and rivers until they reach Sasha’s home. Luckily, Sasha and his father return the favor—and help Lars get back home too.
