Overview

It started with a mother's love... Fleeing from a forest fire, a mother bear urges her two cubs into the watery shelter of a vast body of water. Though it will be difficult, she knows if they can swim across to the opposite shore, they will be safe. With calls of encouragement and steadfast love, Mother Bear guides her cubs across the great lake, Lake Michigan. And the story of what happens once Mother Bear reaches the far shore becomes the legend behind the natural wonder known as Sleeping Bear Dune. In 1998 writer Kathy-jo Wargin and nature artist Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen combined their talents to bring The Legend of Sleeping Bear to life. Published to wide acclaim, the book was soon named the Official Children's Book of Michigan. More than ten years later, this story of enduring maternal love continues to resonate with readers young and old. In celebration of the initial release of The Legend of Sleeping Bear, we are pleased to announce a new, limited edition of the book, accompanied with a free animated DVD narrated by Jeff Daniels.

In this retelling of an Ojibwe Indian tale, a mother bear loses sight of her two cubs as they all attempt to escape a forest fire by swimming across Lake Michigan.

    Life-Changing

    Being a educator, I have read this book to grades 1-3. Every child has been positively affected by the images and feelings conveyed in this book. I have even seen 'macho-like' adults cry at the conclusion of this book. I had to buy extra copies of this book and the other 'The Legend' books. This book will definely change one's life perspective. The young and young at heart will not be disappointed when looking at the book's rich use of color and reading the high-impact words. This book is worth its weight in gold and much more. As an educator, I urge others to get this book.

    Love the book but disappointed in Barnes and Nobles. They advertises that this book is a limited addition with a DVD

    again it was not included.
