Baby Black Bear
Authors:
Aubrey Lang
Artists:
Wayne Lynch
Format: Paperback

In the winter den a sleepy black bear mother cares for her three cubs. But while their mother still wants to nap, the babies are awake and full of energy. When at last their mother leaves the den to search for food, one cub can't wait any longer. So she steps out, followed by her brothers, to explore the sights, tastes and smells of an exciting - and sometimes scary - new world.

Did you know... bears prepare for winter by eating and eating. They may put on over two pounds (one kilogram) of fat every day. If you wanted to eat as much, you would have to gobble down forty-three hamburgers and twelve large orders of fries...every day!

Baby Mountain Sheep
Authors:
Aubrey Lang
Artists:
Wayne Lynch
Format: Paperback

It is spring in the mountains of Alaska, and a female Dall's sheep is born on the high cliffs, sheltered from predators and the worst of the blowing snow. The lamb has a weak leg, but her heart is strong, and she scrambles over the cliffs after her mother and seeks out the company of other lambs that have also settled in the mountain meadow. Over the short summer months, the lamb will need experience in running up the cliffs when grizzlies and other predators make their way to the meadow. Only then will she be safe from harm as she continues to grow to adulthood in the cold months ahead.
