Join us at our weekly Sunday morning story time! Featuring author Lauren Thompson and beloved illustrator Stephen Savage reading from Polar Bear Morning, the story of a first time friendship, a polar bear, and lots and lots of snow!
About Polar Bear Morning:
A polar bear cub explores her artic world and finds something new–a friend. On a chill, bright morning, a polar bear cub awakes inside her cozy den. She hears the seagulls’ far-away calls and clambers out into the day.
Suddenly a snowy something tumbles down a little snow hill. She sees a snowy face, snowy paws, and snowy fur. What can it be?
Thrilling words and glowing pictures make this morning-time tale of first friendship as satisfying as a warm hug.
