Book Review - Polar Bears Aren't White, You Know.
Daniel D’Auria not only teaches young readers about the true coloring of polar bears in his children’s book, “Polar Bears Aren’t White, You Know!” (ISBN 0984985018), he also brings attention to the plight of these unique, endangered creatures and other animals as a result of global climate change. Through the use of his own striking wildlife photography, D’Auria reveals a world little-seen by most, and one which he shows is fading fast.
Using easy-to-follow rhymes, the author takes readers on an in-depth journey into the lives of the animals in Manitoba, Canada. D’Auria’s hobby of wildlife photography shines beautifully through his book as he also subtly educates children on a more important topic: global climate change. He hopes by presenting this important topic to children, it will create a more ecologically conscious future generation.
“I want to introduce young children to some of these creatures early in life so we may foster a greater understanding of the need for us to be ecologically responsible,” D’Auria says. “There is so much knowledge these children can gain by understanding that a great amount of our wilderness and its inhabitants are disappearing due to global climate change.”
He describes his book as a bedtime story that parents and children will enjoy together. D’Auria hopes both will cherish for a lifetime the moments they spend reading and learning together.
“Polar Bears Aren’t White, You Know!” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
About the Author
Dr. Daniel D’Auria is a practicing physician. He graduated from Rutgers Medical School and is the founding member of Digestive Health Physicians, PA. He has written a previous book on polar bears and is currently working on several children’s books featuring wildlife and wildlife photography. D’Auria and his family live in New Jersey.
My Take on the Book
Dr. Daniel D'Auria has written an informative book on polar bears using beautiful photographs that he took with the assistance from the people at Churchill Wild. The book is written in rhyme and flows beautifully with the photographs on each page.
The photographs show polar bears in many settings and doing many things: relaxing, playing, wrestling,and even loving each other. Children love to watch polar bears so I believe the content with the photographs will be enjoyed by the child as well as the adult reading the book.
Dr. D'Auria makes a point of telling his readers that polar bears are quickly becoming an endangered animal due to losing their habitat and global warming. After reading this book you may want to brainstorm how you and your family can help save the polar bear.
Enjoy this book!
