Written and Illustrated by Sarah S. Brannen
Polar Bear camouflages perfectly into his arctic home, except for his bright red tennis shoes. When one of his shoes becomes untied Bear needs help from one of his arctic neighbors. However, everyone is afraid of him. At the end of the book two birds are willing to help Bear untie his shoes so he can enjoy a swim in the ocean and Bear must decide if he will help someone in need. I would have preferred more words to the story, and the plot felt rather cliché.
