Reviews & Acknowledgements
“With its clear text and illustrations, this introduction is just the ticket for younger elementary readers.” —Kirkus Reviews

“After initial introductory paragraphs, Brett scatters brief, captionlike sentences throughout her warm, naturalistic watercolor scenes…A solid introduction to bears, their habits, and the challenges they face.”  —Publishers Weekly
