Kelly Godfrey, August 6, 2009 (view all comments by Kelly Godfrey)
I bought this book when it first came out because I had a student who was absolutely in love with Hunter's Warriors series and I thought I'd find something good for my classroom library. After being introduced, in the first three chapters, to young bears of different species, all with various challenges of finding food and dealing with habitat issues, I became pretty involved in their stories. This first novel touches on global warming (increasingly early spring thaws) and what happens when human and bear habitats intersect.

There is a mystical element in a shape-shifting entity that helps the bears come together (as in some Native American tales), but it actually offers a little comic relief at one point.

There's a lot of loss and sadness in the story and I even shed a tear or two. I liked it well enough that I'll have to read at least one of the sequels, and I definitely would recommend it to students in grades 5 (or 4) and up.
