Face to Face with Grizzliesby Joel Sartore
Joel Sartore has been face-to-face with a grizzly bearand lived to tell this and other great tales in Face to Face with Grizzlies. Through stunning photography and engaging storytelling, this expert challenges young readers to coexist with this fearsome creature. Along with his vast experience and knowledge, Sartore’s contagious passion for the grizzly shines through on every page of this fascinating book.
These books have remarkable color photos and intriguing observations. Engaging stories about the photographers' field experiences are punctuated with factual information about the animals yet focus on situations that will encourage young researchers to take up a camera, too. Murawski tells how to find caterpillars and discusses their developmental stages, body parts, diet problems, and self-defense mechanisms. Heavy on safety recommendations, the second title provides generalizations about diet, hibernation, and what bear biologists are learning from radio-collaring grizzlies and the animals' loss of habitat. Both books have a closing "Facts at a Glance" section and advice on how to go about self-directed research. Attractive, well written, and fascinating.
