You’re Snug With Me

At the start of winter, two bear cubs are born, deep in their den in the frozen north. ‘Mama, what lies beyond here?’ they ask. “‘Above us is a land of ice and snow.” “What lies beyond the ice and snow?” they ask. “The ocean, full of ice from long ago.” And as they learn the secrets of the earth and their place in it, Mama Bear whispers, “You’re snug with me.”

Our Review Panel says...

A captivating picture book that marries a lyrical and rhythmic story about a mother’s care with striking artwork inspired by Indian folklore. This story features a mummy polar bear with her young cubs. With each new wave of curious anxiety that the cubs raise about the world outside their den deep in the snow, Mama Bear’s response gently explains more about the rhythms of their natural habitat, coupled with her reassurance of “you’re snug with me.” A beautiful book that captures a mother’s natural instinct to protect, reassure and equip her young.
