Yodel the Yearling - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

Book Overview:

Yodel and his siblings have woken from their long winter’s nap and are ready to learn and grow. Nature photographer Mary Holland captures precious moments of this black bear family’s springtime adventures. Just like human children, the yearlings play, explore their surroundings, and then snuggle up with mom for milk. They even stay with a special “babysitter” while mom is away. Someday soon, the yearlings will be grown and go off on their own, but for now they can catch a nap under their mama bear’s watchful eye.

My Review:

I'm always excited when Arbordale Publishing releases new books each season.  The company has recently released six new books, with Yodel the Yearling being one of them.  This book tells of Yodel, a one-year old black bear, and his brother and mother after waking up from hibernation.  The pictures show the bears in their natural habitat and how they interact with each other.  Readers also get a glimpse of how the bears eat and exercise.

The 'For Creative Minds' section at the back of the book further educates on the difference between torpor and hibernation, how bears can go so long without eating, what foods bears eat, and the signs that a black bear is nearby.  This is an interesting and educational book for young children to learn about black bears.

Yodel the Yearling is a Spring 2018 release by Arbordale Publishing.

Win It!

When we were going camping in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, we were riding along(husband was driving) and my daughter and I saw a bear cross the road. We said "There's a bear!" at the same time. :)

I see them quite frequently. We live in Northwest New Jersey and while most people think of the state as Newark, it really does have beautiful rural areas that bears and other wildlife think of as their home.
