excerpt:

A grizzly bear could spend half its life hibernating in a den. There it lives off its thick layer of fat, losing one-quarter to one-third of its body weight over the winter.

 

Like all the others books from the fabulous “Nature Babies Series,” Baby Grizzly educates young readers about animals living in the wild. Baby Grizzly is about a family of bears living in Alaska, the young cubs learning about safety, surviving the winter by digging a den, fighting among other bears for the best fishing spots, and growing up to be adults. Acquiring the life skills from the mother bear, the young cubs will know how to catch as many as 25 salmon in one day.

     Baby Grizzly, which is produced by wife and husband Audrey Lang and Wayne Lynch, contains a table of contents, an index, and a “Did You Know?” Throughout the book are color photographs of bears which draw the young reader’s attention to the interesting fast facts about grizzly bears. Baby Grizzly would be a great addition to elementary schools and appropriate for all public libraries.

Highly Recommended.
