About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Houk, Randy

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3--Chocolate follows the life of a female grizzly bear in Glacier National Park from her birth in a winter den to the birth of her own cub years later. The simple text includes a good deal of general information, as well as detailing the efforts of park rangers to move the fearless Chocolate to a remote area far from hikers and campers. Large, eye-catching watercolors march pleasantly in step with the gentle text. A glossary and a small color photo of the real Chocolate complete the picture. Chessie, told in a rhyming text, presents the saga of a Florida manatee who, in 1994 and 1995, headed north, swimming for more than 1500 miles and ending up near Port Judith, Rhode Island. In `94, Chessie was airlifted home, but in `95 did the round-trip on his own. Many manatee facts are included, as are a map of Chessie's journeys, a glossary, and a small color photo. Large, realistic watercolors provide a watery backdrop for Chessie's "biography." Attractive and approachable titles.
