Black Bear or Grizzly Bear? A Compare and Contrast Book
If you were to see a bear in the woods, could you tell if it’s a black bear or grizzly bear? Learn what these two species of bears have in common and how to tell them apart. Are grizzly bears always brown or are black bears always black? Which have short, sharply-curved claws and which have long, gently-curved claws? Do they eat the same things? Explore the similarities and differences between these mammals in this latest addition to the Compare and Contrast Series!

Author/Illustrator Info:

Chris Schmitz has worked in environmental education at zoos and aquariums for over 35 years. She is the Director of Education at Utah’s Hogle Zoo. Chris remembers hiking with her family as a child, turning the corner, and seeing a black bear sitting in the middle of the path eating huckleberries. The wonder of that moment observing that hungry bear and many other equally magical wildlife encounters as a child helped set her career path and to writing her first book, Black Bear or Grizzly Bear? A Compare and Contrast Book. She hopes her books will help children learn more about the natural world and motivate them to protect it.
