Pretty easy read but still good
The Bears on Hemlock Mountain is the story of Jonathan who had to go over Hemlock Mountain where bears were. I liked when the bears came out of hibernation because he went under the big iron pot. I thought the illustrations were realistic. 2nd graders would like this if they like adventure books.
