A whimsical picture book about a polar bear in the Arctic and a penguin in Antarctica who cross the American continents to find one another. This educational story is packed with watercolor illustrations and playful rhymes that teach young readers about the natural world and encourage curiosity about travel, animals, and other cultures.
Introduced by a globe-traveling arctic tern, Big the Bear and Little Penguin set off across North and South America, respectively, to meet each other face-to-face in "the middle."
Along the way, they make new friends of all kinds: wolves, bison, monkeys, jaguars, and more, who help them reach their destination.
