This is a unique spin on the classic "Three Bears" story. It is full of information and is a great teaching tool. The illustrations are gorgeous and my son has made it interactive as we count the bears on every page and he points out the colors of each one (white, brown, and black).
It introduces less common animals such as the moose and seal as well as several land features. I think it would be appropriate for many age ranges. Younger kids will enjoy the main story, while older children will l

A good way to learn about the different diets and habitats of the three types of bears found in Alaska (polar, brown, and black.) I liked the reuse of the original “Three Bears” format, as each bear finds a place just right for him!

This is another book we read to our students at our summer reading program. They loved it. They thought the drawings were terrific, and especially liked the borders on each page. They enjoyed learning more about bears, and they thought it was a neat twist on the original story of the three bears. I highly recommend this book to any teacher who wants to do a unit on bears - it's a book that successfully merges entertainment and educaational components

A fun book that gives students a look at all three types of bears: Polar, Grizzly, and Black. This book is full of great information, but in order to use as a read aloud in kindergarten it is best to just read the story and choose a few snippets of the side information to share.

This book was not very interesting. It would be good for a theme with bears or Alaska or climates even. You could also real all different pigs with playoffs of goldilocks. This is what this book is kind of like.

This is a great teaching tool. Besides telling a little spinoff of the three bears, it also gives interesting facts about the types of bears found in Alaska and Canada.

An informational book on bears that is very interesting but the pictures should be actual pictures of bears in my opinion.
