Doesn't a snack of live ants sound delicious after a long nap? It does if you're a grizzly bear. Using rhythmic, descriptive language that's just right for a read-aloud, this engrossing picture book follows a single bear from spring to winter as she scratches, chomps, claws, and crunches all sorts of tasty plants and prey. The final pages offer additional facts for inquisitive readers, and the eye-catching torn-paper illustrations are a delight (especially the fuzzy-looking bears). Fans of this author/illustrator duo may also enjoy their previous book Vulture View.

Nonfiction books naturally encourage discussion while providing unique, subject-specific vocabulary. As this grizzly bear searches for food during her awake months - April through November - you'll see and hear words like parsnip, sedges, thrashes, talus, and snout. An added bonus are the outstanding torn paper illustrations by Steve Jenkins.
