Kali’s Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue
Kali is an orphaned polar bear. (Orphaned means without a mommy and daddy.) Kali is in the Arctic, in a cave made of snow. People try to give him milk. He doesn’t know how to drink out of a bowl. Then he goes on an airplane ride to the Alaska Zoo. (It’s snowy and cold in Alaska. It’s a good place for a polar bear.) They give him puppy formula and whipping cream. Yuck! When he gets bigger, he eats “bear nuggets.” He naps. He attacks toys. (“I’m hunting a ball.” “I’m hunting a dinosaur.” “I kill you dinosaur!” “I’m going to eat you, teddy bear.”) Then he needs to go to another zoo to get more bears to play with. He makes friends with a girl polar bear, Luna. (I wish I got to see him swimming.) There are lots of facts in the back of the book. (An adult’s armpit is as tall as a polar bear’s butt.) The pictures are real, so I think it’s a real story. I can read this book myself. My favorite picture is Kali attacking the teddy bear. I love this book. Everybody in the whole galaxy would like this book.
