Comments about National Geographic Readers: Polar Bears:
Bought this for my 8 year old grandson who is struggling in chapter books. These books are so interesting he shares the information with the family and quizes them after he is finished reading. He is happy to finish the book cover to cover. His older sister enjoys also. Such a good investment I came back and bought them all.
