“This beautiful series will be a wonderful addition to any children’s library. The well-planned chapters create a very nice resource for young children. Large photographs cover most of the pages and are accompanied by short, simple sentences. Important words are in bold and brightly colored banners announce “Fun Facts” about the animals. There is also a “Bear Facts” page at the end of each book, and also a very short “Words to Know” page where the reader can find definitions for the bold-type words. This is a great series! Bibliography. Index. Table of Contents. Websites. Recommended.”—Beverly Combs, Librarian, Florence Parsons PreKindergarten School, Garland, Texas

School Library Journal ,
November 2015

“ These serviceable introductions to seven of the eight living species of bear include simple sentences and brief chapters. The usual material—habitat, size, appearance, diet, behaviors, young, and conservation status—is chunked into single-page chapters of five short sentences. “Fun Fact” boxes with tidbits such as “Sloth bears also eat fruit” are scattered throughout. The information on size listed in the culminating “Bear Facts” page provides huge ranges with no qualifiers. Photos take up more than half of each spread; however, these images offer no sense of perspective. VERDICT Suitable options, especially for early readers.   ”—Series Made Simple
