An engaging look at how the animals, people, and seasons within an ecosystem are intertwined.

Follow mother bear as she teaches her cubs what they need to survive on their own.

A lyrically poetic text, it delivers a wealth of information on the lives of grizzlies and the ecosystem they are part of, making this an invaluable introduction to the way we are all connected.
