Vintage Pop-Up Book Teaches Important Lessons On Global Climate Change, Natural Selection

When the polar bears are all gone, new parents in the very near future will need something to help kids understand why. Rudolf Lukes' and George Theiner's sweet-looking 1964 pop-up book, The Little Polar Bear Who Didn't Want To Learn To Swim, should fit the bill quite nicely.

If we want to escape the righteous condemnation of future generations, then, it behooves us, the new parents of today, to act now by preserving every copy we can.

Pricing it at a steep $75 on Abebooks should help. [abebooks]
