Overview


In the winter den a sleepy black bear mother cares for her three cubs. But while their mother still wants to nap, the babies are awake and full of energy. When at last their mother leaves the den to search for food, one cub can't wait any longer. So she steps out, followed by her brothers, to explore the sights, tastes and smells of an exciting - and sometimes scary - new world.

Did you know... bears prepare for winter by eating and eating. They may put on over two pounds (one kilogram) of fat every day. If you wanted to eat as much, you would have to gobble down forty-three hamburgers and twelve large orders of fries...every day!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-This picture book takes young readers on a photographic journey through the early life of two bear cubs. One side of each spread features an appealing close-up photo of the cubs engaged in activities such as nursing, sleeping, and exploring their world. Some spreads also include smaller photos on the page of accompanying text. The pictures are the book's focus; the narrative plays a supplementary role, explaining the action that is depicted. The text is generally simple enough for a young audience, but the inclusion of more sophisticated language (urinate, defecate) makes it more suited to reading aloud than for newly independent readers. A "Did You Know?" page at the end provides some additional facts about bears. There isn't enough information here for reports, but the book may attract browsers.-Arwen Marshall, formerly at New York Public Library Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
