Description

The eating habits of bears is one of 14 topics in this clearly written look at three North American bears --- grizzly bears, polar bears and black bears. In this fascinating book in the popular and informative Kids Can Press Wildlife Series you'll find out how and where bears live, how they give birth and raise their cubs, what they eat and much more.

Did you know? • Bears eat so much in the fall that they don't need to eat during the winter. • All baby bears have blue eyes. • Polar bears are related to dogs.
