This news is from a zoo. The zoo is in Ohio, USA. A polar bear is born at the zoo. She is a girl. She is 200 grams heavy.

The mother stops caring for her. People must help the little bear. They feed her six times a day. They feed her a special polar bear formula.

After two months, she is 3 kilograms heavy.

Difficult words: care for (to help), feed (to give food), formula (baby food which is not mother’s milk).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
