This is a 'science' book that was a fun read. Facts and information about all types of bears but written in a way along with photos to make it fun for a child to learn from.

This book is about bears. Bears are very big animals. If you get too close to a bear cub it might kill you.
In fall bears eat any food they could find like fish, flower, grass, young deer and dead animals. Some bears like eating
sweet stuff like honey. Bears store fat for winter. They look for empty dens that were left by other animals. In winter bears
cuddle up with their children when it gets really cold at night. In spring bears come out of their dens to find food for themselves and their child

GRRR! GROWL! is what the bears say when they are mad or when they are fighting with other bears. I like this book because it tells you about all kinds of bears like sun bears, grizzly bears, polar bears, sloth bears, giant pandas, and last but not least their little children called cubs! I like this book because it explains how much they weigh, how much they eat, and how they live and find shelter! :) That's why I think you should read this book. Enjoy!!!

I like this book because it talks about how they can move from place to place and how they can get their food. My favorite bears are giant pandas because they don't hurt people. Giant pandas love to eat bamboo.My other favorite bears are sun bears because they are really the smallest bears and they love to eat honey. Sometimes they eat sweet stuff. This is the best book ever. I just love it so much.
If you were wondering about bears, this is a good book to find many interesting facts about them. I would say that this book would be good for 2nd or 3rd graders to use for a report on bears. It would also be a good start to use for an older student. I like the fact that it has a useful index. The pictures are colorful and the cubs are cute.
