The Toronto Zoo Welcomes a New Baby Polar Bear

You can imagine how excited the children were to have a rare opportunity to see a baby polar bear at the Toronto Zoo.
Although he is safe and well cared for in his new home, the children did take note that the Zoo is not the real home of these magnificent creatures; The Arctic is where he belongs. How much longer can these creatures survive the challenges of global warming?


  1. Hi Tiziana,
    I have recently discovered your blog and I have quickly subscribed to it. It is amazing the things you do with the children and how you nurture their creativity. I'd like to live inCanada, so that I could bring my daughter to your school!!!
    I'd like to ask you for your advice. I am becoming interested in Reggio Emilia, and I'd like to read books about it, especially how to follow this approach at home (not necessarily homeschooling). I've seen some books on Amazon, but, since they are a bit pricey to buy from Spain, I can only buy one (or maybe two) of them, for the moment. I've thought about

    Bringing Reggio Emilia Home: Innovative Approach to Early Childhood Education- Louise Boyd Cadwell
    In the Spirit of the Studio: Learning from the Atelier of Reggio Emilia (Early Childhood Education Series)- Lella Gandini

    What do you think? Is there book other than these or any must have I should start with?
    My email address is
    Thank you very much in advance for your help

  2. Love this beautiful painting! Look at the use of colour to create texture in the water as if it were moving and waves are in the water. And I like the use of colour for the mountains, the gray and white make it look almost 3D! The use of colour on the polar bears fur is great too, very fluffy and furry like. A very beautiful painting I say!
