Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A simple narrative follows the growth of a pair of black bear cubs through

the seasons. . . . Facts and attractive illustrations round out the volume." — THE HORN BOOK

Deep in a forest cave, a mother bear gives birth to two tiny cubs. As they

grow, she protects her cubs fiercely and teaches them all the things they

need to know to survive in the wild. The cubs must learn how to catch

fish in the raging river, gather berries in the woods, and climb trees to

escape from danger — for one day, during their second summer, they will leave their mother to find homes of their own.

Synopsis:

What is it like to be a bear? To sleep in a cave all through the winter, to take one spring day and eat fresh honey as the bees buzz around? With clear, informative prose by Karen Wallace--including fascinating facts about black bear behavior in the form of hand-lettered notes--and large sunny watercolors by Barbara Firth, Bears in the Forest takes young readers through two warm summers and two snowy winters in the footsteps of a mother bear and her young cubs. Full-color illustrator.
