Do you know your panda from your polar bear? Or can you spot the difference between a sun bear and a sloth bear? Follow your expert field guide as we travel deep into the woods and across Arctic ice to learn all the “bear” necessities.
Bears are familiar to us all, but what you might not realize is that behind their big, grizzly image are wild animals who really need our help. So put on your walking boots, grab your binoculars, and come along on a journey to see the eight incredible bear species in the wild. Written by an experienced field guide, author, and naturalist, Do Bears Poop in the Woods? gives children a taste of what it’s like to work with animals in the wild. Not only will you discover why bears poop so much, you’ll also find out how to avoid getting eaten by one and what we can do to protect them.
This book is bringing up bear ideas and facts that I've never really seen on the page for kids before… The whole book is just a great look at the sheer variation within the species and where it might be going in the future. In short, a bear book of the year, for certain.
