Knut: How One Little Polar Bear Captivated the World Reviews
This is such a sweet story of Knut and his handler with beautiful (very cute) photographs. My 8-year old daughter is studying environment in her school and has particularly latched onto the idea of polar bears. This gives an intimate portrait of one polar bear without being preachy about the environment - through there are appropriate resources at the back. My five year old also enjoys it - I think this reading level would continue to be appropriate up to about 9 or 10. One of the better "polar bear" books we have come across.
What a beautiful book! Im only sad that l purchased it after Knut passed away in the Berlin Zoo. I keep it on my glass coffee table and many of my guests pick it up and read it from cover to end and get comments from each of them "What a gorgeous little bear, what a beautiful book"
Nice story. My granddaughter checked out a video of Knut from the library and I was excited to find the book for her,
the story of Knut and the zoo employee who raised him is SO sweet. the pics of Knut are too adorable. I had given a copy of this book to my grand daughter for Christmas and then ordered this one from amazon just to have another on hand ( and also so I could look at it lol). Very sweet, any child or animal lover who is young at heart will love it.
The story of Knut has been known to adults for years. This is a great opportunity for the adults that know it and want to pass it on to the children in their lives.
This book has been a big hit with the children in our family. My niece's granddaughter took it to preschool to share it with her classmates and my nephew-in-law's son took it to bed with him as well as to preschool to share the wonder and magic of precious Knut with his classmates! It is a beautiful, wholesome true story that the whole family can enjoy.
This is an excellent book. My 6 yo grandson loves Polar BEars. I bought this and a plush bear for him. Now this is his favorite bedtime book--and he sleeps w/ his bear,
Polar bear = Requested by granddaughter so this Christmas gift was perfect with plush bear, Knut book and Knut & Friends video
