This colorful, well-focused volume offers an excellent pictorial introduction to Alaskan grizzly bears along with information about their habitat, physical features, foods, and behaviors, with particular emphasis on mother grizzlies raising cubs. A typical double-page spread includes a few paragraphs of clearly written text on a single subject, illustrated with one or more color photos of remarkable clarity. These pictures offer exceptionally fine views of Alaskan grizzlies in the wild . . . A useful, visually appealing introduction to the subject.
Booklist

Rich, colorful photographs and descriptive narrative text showcase the world of Alaska's grizzly bears. While some attention is given to brown bears and other critters that call Alaska home, this book is primarily about the features, habitats, and behaviors of the grizzlies. The author provides details about their physical traits, from varying fur colors to the nature of their nasal cavities, and examines the relationship between those characteristics and the bears' environment and eating habits. Much focus is given to baby cubs and their mothers, and Alaska's Denali and Katmai National Parks are mentioned. Headings like "A Magnificent Creature," "Can't Catch Me!" and "Who's Hungry?" and boldface words throughout the book will assist those looking for informational text features, and discussion questions and extension activities are listed in the back.
