Moon in Bear's Eyesby Stephen R. Swinburne
Synopses & Reviews
After a long winter of hibernation, mother grizzly bear emerges from her den with two new little cubs trailing behind. To keep her cubs healthy and well fed, mother bear must find food that will allow her to produce the fat-rich milk they drink. So off the three go, out of the woods and into the meadow, searching for a hearty meal. There they find tasty plants, ground squirrels, and a feast of dead elk. Yet they cannot rest easy, for a young male bear wants the elk for himself, and he is willing to fight to get it. Will mother let him near her cubs? In this beautifully illustrated tale, readers learn of grizzlies' feeding behavior and of their fierce protectiveness toward their young.
After a long winter of hibernation, mother grizzly bear emerges from her den with two little cubs. Now she must teach them to navigate their environment, forage for food, and defend their finds.
A lyrical look at life in Yellowstone National Park as seen through the eyes of a mother grizzly bear protecting her cubs. The combination of fiction and seemingly real-life depictions is fascinating.
