Here come the bears - real bears - Grizzly bears, Polar bears, brown bears, black bears. Each bear family, made up of a mother and her cubs, has an interesting story of its own and each story is true to life. Mother Grizzly Bear is a good and loving mother but she is going to see to it that her babies are brought up as proper little bears should be, teaching them to forage for food, to understand the changing seasons, and to avoid humans and their guns.
The pictures are both factual and charming, showing each family of bears in its own setting. Garry MacKenzie, who lived nineteen years in California, says the book "is as near to Yosemite Park as I shall ever now be able to get."
