really liked it
bookshelves: juvenile-non-fic
Read in August, 2012

The photos in this book are amazing. The bears seem like they are really looking at the camera and, therefore, the reader.

And wow. The effort that is going in to studying these bears. The capture season is full of HARD work hunting, tagging, measuring, weighing, and sampling. Then entering all the data into a computer. Then analyzing all that data.

That said, I have a hard time believing that 5th graders would come close to finishing this book. I may still get one copy, just for the photos and the browsers who may read a bit. But the vocabulary and denseness of text? Definitely signs of a book more for middle school or public libraries.
