Summary
Describes the physical characteristics, behavior, and habitat primarily of grizzly bears, with some comparisons to black bears and polar bears
Review
  • Gr 4-6– Mangelsen's fine photos and Cooper's attractive sketches accompany Hirschi's readable text bursting with the “bear facts” on grizzlies (with some asides on black bears). Set in Greater Yellowstone, the whole is enhanced by pages from the author's field notebooks, which lend a real-time field-trip flavor to this cycle of the grizzly's spring awakening to a high-calorie binge prior to winter hibernation. An author's note presents a plea for the protection and preservation of this great bear. Team this title with Dieter Betz's The Bear Family (Morrow, 1992; o.p.) and/or Lynn M. Stone's Grizzlies (Carolrhoda, 1993) for an excellent introduction to North America's largest land predator. Inviting and informative.–Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY --Patricia Manning (Reviewed September 1, 2005) (School Library Journal, vol 51, issue 9, p224)
  • In this informative offering, Hirschi gives readers an up-close-and-personal look at grizzly bears in Yellowstone National Park, providing details about the animal's habitat, environment and eating habits in a tone so conversational that the text feels like a personal tour from an experienced guide. He even gives tips on how to best observe this magnificent animal should young readers travel to Yellowstone themselves. Mangelsen's gorgeous full-color photographs—of bears and their cubs, and enormous grizzly footprints in the mud and melting snow—appear throughout. They add to the drama, and share space with journal-like sidebars, which are presented as though on the pages of a spiral-bound notebook, and carefully observed field drawings by Cooper. A compelling choice for young nature lovers. (Picture book. 7-10) (Kirkus Reviews, September 1, 2005)
