Henry Holt, 2008
In a few months it is mild enough to venture outside. The mother teaches her cubs how to use their claws so they don't slip in their frozen world. She leads them across the sea ice, the only place to hunt for seals, their primary food. All the bears need to fatten up to survive through the summer, when the ice is gone and food is scarce.
The book ends with an Arctic Ice Report about melting ice and a list of organizations that are working to help the environment.
