SummaryAdd a Summary
If you're going for a walk in bear country anytime soon, be sure to consult this unconventional, tongue-in-cheek guide for some helpful advice! (Told from a child's point of view, this is an interactive guide.)
The first step is to realize that bear spotting a very serious business. Don't laugh! A black bear can weigh 227 kilograms (that's a lot of bear!), while some brown bear species can weight up to 544 kg (wow - that's even more bear....!). A bear spotter must be able to recognize the different types of these furry creatures.
There are some noticeable differences between black bears, brown bears and teddy bears. For example, some types are dangerous and will even eat people! What should you do if you're unlucky enough to come face-to-face with a real bear (whether it's brown or black)? A bear-spotter must be able to think quickly ... and to be able to "play dead".
What is the all-important, "golden" rule of bear-spotting? It's this: you should only even get close to - and snuggle up to - a teddy bear (and never a real bear)! The off-bear, quirky silliness in this whimsical read-aloud is sure to be enjoyed by bear-loving readers and listeners, who will also enjoy artist David Roberts' silly, expressive illustrations. (Readers should especially look at the bears' facial expressions.....) ** Recommended for ages 3 to 7 years.
