Synopses & Reviews
The Legend of Sleeping Bear recently received Lansing's Capital Area District Library's Children's Choice Award for Best Picture Book. It was also named the Official Children's Book of Michigan in 1998!
The great bear sleeps- waiting for her cubs- who have turned into the Manitou Islands - the wind sweeps on.
In this retelling of an Ojibwe Indian tale, a mother bear loses sight of her two cubs as they all attempt to escape a forest fire by swimming across Lake Michigan.
