When Knut was born, the first polar bear cub at the Berlin Zoo in more than thirty years, he was no bigger than a snowball and unable to care for himself. His mother, a rescued East German circus bear, didn't know how to take care of Knut and rejected him. Knut would have died if it weren't for Thomas Dorflein, a zookeeper who nurtured Knut, feeding him, sleeping with him, and giving him the love and attention Knut needed to thrive. But Thomas wasn't the only one who adopted Knut. The adorable little polar bear captured the world's attention, and now Knut is loved around the globe.
This is a wonderful story about how one zoo keeper fell in love with a small polar bear cub and through his actions and love was determined that the little cub would survive against incredible odds.
This well written and illustrated book is a sheer pleasure to read. The pictures are incredibly beautiful.
This is the type of story that gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling inside.
I absolutely loved this book and recommend it to for all public, home, and school libraries. It is a must read for anyone who loves animals and loves the planet.
With his cute waddle and playful spirit, it was hard not to love Knut. He received as many as two hundred letters each week. People of all ages sent poems and other words of friendship. Children who were too young to write drew pictures for Knut. Everyone wanted Knut to know how happy he made them feel."
Check this out! You won't be disappointed!
