This book is all about the great grizzly mama. She is so awesome and yet wild. She knows how to keep her children safe to make sure that they can live and thrive. She also takes the time to care and hunts meals for them. The bear eats plants and loves flowers. She also has a sweet tooth and loves honey. But when winter comes, the grizzly goes off somewhere where it is warm and dry and hibernates for the winter with her babies. But when spring and summer comes, they are right out again, running and playing in the wild.
The only real enemy for bears is man and guns. People love to hunt bears in the wild, and that can really cause a lot of anxiety for the bears. If only people were not as scared of bears! People could be less fearful if they got to know more about this endangered species of bears, especially those in their areas where they live.
Margot Finke is a wonderful storyteller. She will capture the imagination of many young people with her books. The illustrator also does a splendid job of bringing the message clearly to kids. The illustrations are vivid and absolutely stunning!
