I just went blueberry picking and I met a girl named Sal. She scared me at first, but then I hid and watched her. I can't wait to tell all my friends at bear school.

Daddy says I don't have enough toes to play the cello but Jeanie and I are going to take cello lessons together anyway.

Daddy says we have to start recycling around the house. Faroukie and I are going to crush cans tonight.

I got a B on my animal sounds test. We all took turns and I had to do the lion, the wolf, and the duck. They all say "grrr" right?

Well I am going back to school very soon. My brother Farouk says he will miss me but I can learn lots of stuff at school, and we can go out and play when I get home.

I am going to play the cello this year like Jeanie! Farouk can borrow the cello because he has been learning from books and now he can play a real one.

I am sad because I am endangered. Every year at bear school there are less cubs to play with. But mommy says if I don't go to school then everybody will miss me, too, and I don't want my friends to be sad. I wish there were more Polars at school but I like all my bear friends. I even taught them to break through the ice and hunt.

Sorry I haven't been updating, but my hunts get longer and longer when there is no ice to take me out to where the seals are and I have a hard time finding food :(

Why is mommy so crabby? They are playing Interpol at Muddy Waters, yay, I like Interpol. Someday I hope they will tour the Arctic so I can go see them! I also like Cyndi Lauper!

Ooh, and this book too!  We read it in bear school and it reminded me of my mom *sniff*

BOOK REVIEW
Borealis: A Polar Bear Cub’s First Year, by Rebecca L. Grambo, photography by Daniel J. Cox; Walrus Books, 2003; 48 pp., $14.95, paper

Children who love comforting stories about mothers and their babies will like Borealis, the bear of many questions. As he goes through his first year with his mother by his side, they discover where a cub is born and what he needs to learn to survive. “How do we catch a seal Mama? Why have foxes been following us? Why are all the other bears here? Mama, do you ever get tired of me asking questions?”

There are encounters with arctic animals—ptarmigans, arctic foxes, lemmings, and belugas—and an explanation of northern lights. We also find out why polar bears rely on sea ice to catch their seal prey. A section on facts and figures helps the parent or teacher explain the story.

Photos are nicely chosen with a child’s perspective in mind. Gently written with the cub’s questions leading the way, Borealis will charm the very young and be a resource for a youngster’s polar bear project.

Cendrine Huemer has a two-year-old daughter who feeds honey to the polar bear behind the couch.

Whee!  I just turned old enough to have my very own LiveJournal!  I am so happy.  I wanted to tell everyone about one of my favorite books:  it's called Alaska's Three Bears and it tells about Polars, and our friends the Brown bear and a Grizzly bear!  I have friends at school who are Browns and Grizzlies, and we all agreed that this is a great book!
