"Bears, bears, everywhere," from the Arctic to the zoo, and many places in between. Schwaeber's alphabet book is packed with information about various bears, their habits, and their habitats, all shared through a minimalist text for young listeners. Each listen and look at the book itself will add to a young scientist's knowledge. Marc Thompson narrates slowly and distinctly. His enthusiasm for the topic is evident as facts roll off his tongue. Did you know that grizzlies prefer a nocturnal existence? Think how much fun it will be to use the word "omnivore" accurately! This recording offers a jaunty song, the alphabet book, a glossary with additional information, and a poster in an appealing, compact package.
