Children's Book Week / Dear Polar Bear

Happy Children's Book Week!  

Since I just found out that this week is Children's Book Week, I thought I should highlight a few things.  First of all, if you have not yet had the opportunity, pop over and check out my friend Ellen's blog - A Present Opened Again and Again - which is all about awesome children's books!  She's part of the reason I got into book blogging AND she has a great giveaway going on right now for the book Shiloh

Next, I want to spotlight a really fun kids' book that is sitting on my bookshelf.  Dear Polar Bear by Barry Ablett is a book that my husband picked up at a Scholastic Book Fair last year.  I've always loved pop-up books (and polar bears!) and this one follows the story of a lonely polar bear writing letters to all of his bear friends around the world.  Each letter - and the gifts that his friends send to him - features something to pull out, open up or pop out of the pages of the story.  The illustrations are adorable and the story teaches a little geography and natural science while also being cute and entertaining.  Great as a gift book and wonderful as a read aloud, Dear Polar Bear is a definite winner!
