It's early spring at the top of the world and snow stretches to the horizon and beyond. Polar Bear and her two cubs are growing hungry after spending the cold winter months in their den. When they emerge, Polar Bear checks for danger and waits for the cubs to acclimate to the ice. Learn about their long and dangerous journey to sea as this arctic adventure unfolds. How will Polar Bear find food and protect her hungry cubs?
