Follow the life of a grizzly bear for a year. From springtime spent searching for food through the hibernating winter months, readers are treated to lots of fun and fascinating facts about these animals told through poem. Beautiful torn-paper collage illustrations! Additional information can be found at the back of the book.

Talk about the power of words! Whether sung or spoken, the right words can inspire us to do great things. This was a great mash-up of two people who worked towards a more united world until their dying days. Biographies and a timeline follows. Brian Pinkney also shares his motivation and approaches with the book’s illustrations.
