★ "In poetic prose, a polar bear reveals her dependency on the cycle of Arctic seasons. The artwork is strikingly beautiful...The text also excels. Complementing its enchanting rhythym, the text includes some enjoyable alliteration...A subtle cry for environmental activism in an enticing package." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

★ "Subtly demonstrates the impact of global warming on polar bears. . . .[Moore] combines layers of different blues to contrast with the white ice and the white bear, which smartly emphasizes the solitude of the creature and its predicament. . . .An artful and expressive take on the effects of global warming--and a timely addition to picture book nonfiction collections." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

★ "Stunning. . .the rich colors and textures of the Arctic environment are so lifelike, they might even elicit shivering. . . .a spectacular trek through the Arctic with the magnificent polar bear and a stark reminder of the effects of climate change." -- Shelf Awareness (starred review)

"The polar bear. . .has awareness and a voice, but it is not a human one. Dramatic, luminous art. . .presents vast expanses of sea and sky in shades of blue, gray, and white." -- ALA Booklist

"In Moore's blue-saturated illustrations, ice, sky, and sea dominate. . . . The text presents the voice of the bear in the first person, somber and serious . . . with refrains that capture the experiences of her species: "Polar bears are patient beasts, as patient as glaciers. We know how to hope and how to wait." At the close of the book, the message takes on both a hopeful and urgent tone." -- The Horn Book
