"Keeping them wild" - October 06, 2008 What a great way to teach kids (and their parents) about bear behavior. The book has wonderful illustrations and reads well. It is especially nice to point out the known Downtown Talkeetna buildings to my daughter when we study the book. I would recommend this book with CD to all young readers and parents of preschool kids.You must log in before writing a review
