This is the delightful story of a baby black bear who’s too curious to eat, completely fascinated by the natural world around her, and sees her surroundings as one big outdoor playground.
About the Author
Michael Elsohn Ross is the author of more than forty books for children, most about science or world cultures. He lives right next to California's Yosemite National Park, where, for close to thirty years, he has been working as a naturalist, taking visitors on hikes and walks to learn all about the park. His ideas, he says, "come from my work as a naturalist and my adventures with school kids."
Paul Meisel is well known for his illustrations in more than thirty
children's books, including the Cool Crazy Crickets books by David Elliott, ALMOST LATE TO SCHOOL and other picture books by Carol Diggory Shields, and books in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out science series.
Consie Powell is an artist and writer who loves to snoop in nature's lovely untidy places, has a soft spot for predators, and sometimes finds a story that links the two. She creates books for young readers, binds her own sketch journals, and helps others learn the joys of taking visual and written notes to keep track of how life dances around us. She is an award-winning author and illustrator of a dozen books, including Old Dog Cora, Leave Only Ripples, and A Bold Carnivore. She first paddled into the Quetico-Superior wilderness on her honeymoon more than three decades ago. When she's not creating art, writing stories, baking bread, or goofing around with her Newfoundland dogs, she paddles her wooden canoe near her home on the edge of the BWCA, sketchbook and binoculars always handy.
