A polar bear family goes for a walk while their breakfast cools off. Aloo-ki comes upon their igloo and goes inside. To find out what happens to Aloo-ki you have to read the book. We loved the Arctic illustrations and reading about Aloo-ki's adventures. Again another great winter story written by Jan Brett.  Check out this book!
