Solar the Polar features a snowboarding Polar Bear and a skier girl who is missing her legs below the knee. This fun winter romp gives a gentle nod to Arctic warming, backcountry safety, and adventure with a disability. Solar the Polar is about embracing unexpected friendships and enjoying the ride along the way. Winter is no time to hibernate...so go for a ride outside with the Polar inside!
Captivating and colorful character illustrations by the talented picture book artist, Jessica Linn Evans.
