Born in a mountain cave in Alaska, three grizzly cubs wait out the winter with their mother. When spring finally arrives, the mother grizzly leads her babies down the mountain to the river. But the mother is wary; there are big male bears near the water, and they are a danger to her children. When they are older, the cubs will be ready to fish in the river with the adult bears. But for now they will retreat up the mountainside. There the cubs will absorb the lessons that will one day ensure their survival.

    Review:


    "With easy-to-read text and stunning photos, Baby Grizzly will feed children's appetite for all things wild."
    --The Chronicle Herald

    "Like all the others books from the fabulous "Nature Babies Series," Baby Grizzly educates young readers about animals living in the wild. . . 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.
    -- CM Magazine

    "The book is visually stimulating and a good read."
    -- School Library Journal

    "The photographs in this book are wonderful. Seeing the mom grizzly in all these pictures with her trail of cubs behind her, and on her - even when they are bigger, is very touching. You feel privileged to be able to see these moments. And a few pictures make you smile. . . This husband and wife team, who camped out in Alaska to study the grizzlies, have done an outstanding job documenting a bit of the grizzly bear's life.
    "Rated: Excellent, enduring, everyone should see it!"
    -- Resource Links

    "It is a straightforward, simply written, biologically correct, firsthand account of young hears growing up that does not talk down to young readers and listeners. . . The book is a model of nature writing for young children. . . Through outstanding photographs and appealing text, a young reader follows the cubs as they grow up to independence in the third summer of their life."
    -- Science Books & Films

    "Packaged for children aged five to eight, Baby Grizzly never condescends, but manages to bring youngsters a beautiful, informative book that won’t intimidate even the most reluctant reader. The photographs are first rate and the numerous grizzly facts simply but succinctly shared."
    -- January Magazine

    "Following three baby grizzly cubs from Alaska as they grow up and prepare to leave the den forever is truly fascinating. . . The vivid colour and the amazing use of a zoom lens captures the human-like character of the bears."
    -- The University of Toronto Bookstore

    "Wonderful candid colour shot of mother and cubs in the wild illustrate this charming and instructive story"
    -- Burnaby Now
