Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Polarity Bear Tours The Zoo - A central Park Adventure

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.

Polarity Bear is bored.
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.
