Wild About Bears

WildAboutBearsIf you’re wild about bears, you’ll probably be wild about this book. Author Jeannie Brett shows us the eight different kinds of bears on the planet: Black bears, Brown bears, Polar bears, Spectacled bears, Pandas, Sun bears, Sloth bears and Asiatic black bears. She fills us in on the important details: size, scientific name, common names, what they like most in the world to eat, how polar bear paws are adapted to a water world and sloth bear paws adapted to sunbathing in trees…. just the bare necessities. There’s a map in the back in case you want to go on a bear hunt, and websites and books for curious naturalists who want to know more.

For some hands-on bear activities, head over to Archimedes Notebook.
