Reviews

A Teaching and Learning for Peace Foundation Recommended Book!
Years Best Picture Book, 2008, "Resource Links"
"The serene, panoramic color illustrations reflect the majesty of nature and wild things in this enduring folktale, and an afterword mentions different variations of the legend told among Native American tribes. "The Woman Who Married a Bear" is truly a classic story in the most profound sense of the word."
- "Midwest Book Review"
"A memorable examination of the interdependence between humans and their environment. Atanas's illustrations are strongest when the raw Pacific landscape spreads across the page, celebrating sky, land and sea."
- "Kirkus Reviews"
"The exquisite art by Atanas Matsoureff enriches the narrative by providing a strong visual tone to the story.... This book would be suitable for Social Studies topics or Language Arts curriculum on folk tales. This folk tale is common to several western First Nations cultures. This book could be used in conjunction with other retellings to give students a better concept of variants or the oral tradition common to these cultures. It would also provide a point for discussion of the connection between these cultures and the natural world. This book would be suitable for both school and public libraries. Excellent."
