Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
This nonfiction text begins with the story of a bear cub and how he lives and learns from his mother until he is grown. Then the characteristics and behavior of black, brown, and grizzly bears are described and compared. A chapter explains what they eat and how they hibernate. More information about baby bears and their mothers is given, and the last chapter contains facts about koalas, kinds of bears and their habitats. Part of the "Amazing Animals" series, the text includes a table of contents, a glossary, and an index. There is also a 10-question quiz and a page that lists related books and websites. Photographs in color are plentiful and realistic. Sidebars throughout provide additional interesting facts. This easy-to-read text contains basic and essential information for readers who either have an interest in reading about bears or who need a good resource text for research purposes. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
