Polar Bear Scare

It's common knowledge that human activity is leaving a terrible stain on our planet. No where is this felt more accutely than in the Arctic and Canada's northern territories. The ice caps are melting and polar bears are now officially facing extinction. What can we do and where do we begin?

Jean Davis Okimoto's picture book Winston of Churchill comes at precisely the right time. IChurchill, Manitoba, the Polar Bear Capitol of the world, is the setting for her story about global warming, starring the indomitable Winston. There is no other picture book that takes on global warming with such intelligence, clarity, and humour. Getting our children reading about these issues early is the key to cultivating a greener society.

Winston of Churchill will be published this December by Sasquatch Books.
