Reviews

"Another inviting example of scientific field work in a consistently appealing series."--Kirkus, STARRED review

"The book capably combines the you-are-there immediacy of charting bear behaviors with surprising facts about bears (NC bears don't do full hibernation; bear pregnancy involves "delayed implantation," which means months between the conception and the implantation of the embryo) and illuminating information about how humans can best coexist with bears."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books​

"[An] encouraging case study of efforts to manage black bear populations."--The Horn Book Magazine

"Useful introduction to a field of scientific study that will only grow in importance."--School Library Journal
