Summary, etc.: "A girl teaches a polar bear to see the colors in his environment as they take a trip around the world"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 November #2
    A polar bear, who is surrounded by "white ice and white snow," longs for one thing: color. White with gray backdrop scenes sprinkled lightly with color fill the first third of the story zeroing in on Bear's discontent. A brief moment of happiness comes when Bear receives a picture of a rainbow from a sweet little brown-faced girl (also donned in white). But recognizing that he needs help, the little girl rigs her skiff and sails across the ocean. Packed with art supplies, the two travel around the world, and Bear paints what he sees. When they return, Bear realizes that home had "every color of the rainbow" all along. Textured motifs and mixed-media in individual hues of the rainbow illustrate the duo's journey to popular landmarks, such as the London Bridge, Notre-Dame, and the Taj Mahal, and when they return, the full spectrum of colors appears in the aurora borealis. The combination of color, playful characters with rich facial expressions, and iconic world landmarks make this a charming tale perfect for storytime. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.
