Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4; 5;

Fraser Bear follows the first two years in a black bear cub's life in the Pacific Northwest. Fraser's days are filled with adventure, danger, and delight -- and the endless quest for food. He learns the fun of sliding in the snow, the sounds of owls and coyotes, how to find and fill his belly with berries, and how to scurry up a tree and hang on for his life. Most important, he tries to learn the skill of salmon catching from his mother. Eventually, Fraser must leave the protection of his mother and sister and journey on by himself. This exciting story is illuminated by beautiful illustrations of Fraser and his adventures, uniting the cycles of bear and fish, whose lives are so importantly intertwined. A map of the area, glossary, and further information about bears and salmon complete this delightful nature story for young readers.

Tale of a Great White Fish

Grade Levels: Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3; 4;

Many times in her 177 years, Big Fish has come close to death. Stalked by panners in the gold rush, nearly crushed in 1913's rockslide, almost stranded when the lake drained into the river in 1924, and threatened by a mysterious disease in the 1990s, Big Fish has somehow survived. She's led sports fishers on a merry chase, managing to escape their hooks—so far. Maggie de Vries's poetic text and Rennee Benoit's gorgeous watercolors capture all the danger and fascination of Big Fish's underwater world.
