Waluk 300x219 This Weeks Comics: Sweet Arctic HomeWaluk GN – Lerner Publishing makes the plight of the arctic in the read of kids. Waluk is a young polar bear who has been abandoned by his mother, as is the way of polar bears, and must now fend for himself. He doesn’t know much about the world. His arctic world is changing with the ice melting, and food is hard to find. While other polar bears raid and beg from the humans, Waluk meets cranky old Manitok, an old bear with missing teeth and a bad sense of smell. But he knows the Arctic, and teaches Waluk about seals, foxes and the changing seasons. Waluk learns about the humans too, when Manitok is caught in a trap. While the humans think they are helping by putting Manitok down, Waluk tries to rally the other polar beats to rescue him. Aimed at elementary-aged readers, this title shows the effects of climate change through the eyes of one of the Arctic’s best known inhabitants. The engaging story and illustrations will get this book into the hands of many kids. It would make a great addition to any library.

Chis Sweet Home 10 This Weeks Comics: Sweet Arctic HomeChi’s Sweet Home Volume 10 GN – Vertical’s adorable grey kitten is back for more fun and adventure! Ever since the first volume, Chi has had memories of his mother and home. Now, Chi is very close to finally being reunited with her and her siblings. But there are obstacles still to overcome, the biggest of which is whether or not the Yamadas will be able to part with their youngest family member. While this series is full of fun and cute kitten antics, it can also be heartwarming and poignant. The later volumes have really been tugging at the heartstrings, but don’t let that stop you from picking up this one. Chi’s story is filled with love and laughter, and you won’t find a better story to share with your young ones.
