  • Where Are You Polar Bear?

Where Are You Polar Bear? is one of two new books from a plastic-free touch and feel eco baby board book range. The other one is called Where Are You Tiger?

The books are made from responsibly-sourced cardboard and everything in the book is completely recyclable. They feature endangered animals and colourful illustrations that toddlers love.

The books are very sweet and have a simple text that’s perfect for reading out loud to toddlers. I love that these books are plastic-free (unlike most touch and feel books) and my toddler absolutely loves exploring the pages with their fun corrugated elements and cut-out sections.

We follow Finn who wants to catch some fish for his dinner but all he catches is other people’s rubbish. He ends up going home with lots of fished up trash but no fish for his dinner. Instead he comes up with ways to recycle and reuse everything he’s collected each day while making like-minded friends and helping the oceans get cleaner and full of fish again. A lovely book for young children!

“Track a colony of bats as they fly through the twilight to pollinate the flowers of the mysterious baobab tree, follow a family into the wilderness to gaze at the constellations, watch whales swimming through chilly Arctic waters under the gentle glow of the Northern Lights, then chart the journey of a ship navigating by the stars.”

A Mum Reviews

I love that this book features such a wide range of things that happen in the night sky – from fireworks to nocturnal animals to planets and stars up above and lots more. It’s fun and relatable. The text is short but informative and the illustrations are beautiful!
