KIRKUS REVIEW

In this informative offering, Hirschi gives readers an up-close-and-personal look at grizzly bears in Yellowstone National Park, providing details about the animal’s habitat, environment and eating habits in a tone so conversational that the text feels like a personal tour from an experienced guide. He even gives tips on how to best observe this magnificent animal should young readers travel to Yellowstone themselves. Mangelsen’s gorgeous full-color photographs—of bears and their cubs, and enormous grizzly footprints in the mud and melting snow—appear throughout. They add to the drama, and share space with journal-like sidebars, which are presented as though on the pages of a spiral-bound notebook, and carefully observed field drawings by Cooper. A compelling choice for young nature lovers. (Picture book. 7-10)
