    1 thought on “Tooga: The Story of a Polar Bear

    1. A lovely little science book disguised as a story. Children will learn all about polar bears as they read this engaging story following Ursa, a female polar bear, as she heads to her birth place to have her twin babies, Apoon and Tooga. The story follows the bear family as Ursa protects her offspring as they grow, hunt and explore their arctic home. When Tooga is ready to be weaned he becomes separated from his family and the story follows him as he learns to survive on his own and to stay away [...]

    2. Read this as a family, it was an interesting story about polar bear habitat/life. A little slow at times, but good otherwise.
