Alaska's Three Bears by Shelley Gill (Author), Shannon Cartwright (Illustrator)
A twist of the original story "The Three Bears," teaches young readers about the three kinds of bears one might find in Alaska - the grizzly, the polar bear and the black bear. Valuable information on each species is shared in an box on each page.
The book tells how each bear chose where he wanted to live. The polar bear likes cold, snow and ice. He preferred living in the far north. The grizzly bear loves salmon, digging up roots and chasing animals. The little black bear chooses the forest wtih places to hide. All the bears loved their preferred homes.
There is a Teacher Resource Guide in the back of the book with teaching suggestions on how to use the book in the classroom.
