My kids are enjoying a new read called Polarity Bear Tours The Zoo - A central Park Adventure.
It's a fun read about the bear's adventures. You can read it with your children or have them read it to you.
We love books and will always be up for a good read, for fun or educational purposes.
I really enjoy the illustrations too. I remember as a child reading many a book without photos and using my imagination.
Now most books have really fun illustrations and not just on rare pages, but as a backdrop to the words in the story.
The kids and I concur that is a very interesting story book.
She arrived at the Central Park Zoo when animals still lived in cages instead of their natural environments.
Polarity decides it's time for a break. She escapes from her cage and tours Central Park, where she visits attractions we can still see today.
This book tells the tale of her adventures.
