Children's LiteratureThis book in the "Animals I See at the Zoo/Animales que veo en el zoológico" series highlights notable features of the world's bear population. Readers learn that there are many types of bears that live in many different locations. Black bears live in forests while polar bears live where it is cold. Three pages of the book are devoted to the ever-popular polar bear, which uses its white fir to hide from its prey and its strong front arms to paddle through icy water. The book also draws attention to several features that all bears have in common. They can stand on their hind legs while looking around for food and all have sharp claws. Full-page color photographs of bears in zoos and their natural habitat correspond perfectly to the simple bilingual text, and a glossary, and index, and a page leading to more resources about bears are all presented at the end of the book. While the book would make a useful addition to any pre-school or early elementary classroom, library, or home-setting, it is specifically designed for small group instructional teaching. 2004, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 4 to 7.
