FACE TO FACE WITH GRIZZLIES by Joel Sartore
CHILDREN'S
Released: May 8, 2007

Tracking grizzlies from Alaska to the Rocky Mountains, a frequent National Geographic photographer, in a first book for children, gives young readers a first-hand account of daily life of these huge endangered mammals. Photos take center stage, showing bears eating, greeting, sleeping and playing with their cubs. While much of his narrative is in a friendly, personal tone, the author stresses the need to protect the environment of the bear, shows the much diminished range of grizzlies and provides brief facts, a glossary and further reading. Side panels give tips for readers who travel beyond the armchair—for example "How to Not Get Eaten by a Grizzly." A glossy picture essay that young nature fans will enjoy browsing.
