ABOUT THE BOOK
The polar ice is melting. Every day, it gets harder and harder for the polar bears to find food. So the Great Bear grants super powers to a young bear named Hyko, and sends him on a mission to the land of the humans to stop the ice from melting. Hyko must master his new powers, befriend a human family, and get to the bottom of what’s causing the ice to melt... before it’s too late.
START THE CONVERSATION IN YOUR HOME
Climate change and energy awareness can feel like overwhelming subjects. But this charming story addresses those huge issues on a scale kids can relate to. In the first of further adventures to come, Hyko introduces children to the plight of the polar bears, and teaches them what they can start doing right now, today, to help.
ENERGY HEROES IN EVERY HOME
That’s how CareToSave believes we can make a better world. As a socially conscious, environmentally responsible enterprise, that’s the whole reason we started our company. So we created Hyko, a super-powered polar bear named after an Inuit word for “ice”. Through Hyko’s storybook adventures and a forthcoming energy-monitoring device, CareToSave gives families the power to understand their energy consumption and make a positive difference in their homes and in the world.
