Bear books for children—a fun and fascinating way for young readers to find out more about these highly intelligent creatures.
This bear book for kids mixes facts, photos and even includes a video clip section.
IP Factly's 101 Facts series has been designed to encourage and bolster independent reading.
Accompanying webpage with video clips
This book provides fact after fact for information hungry children to tell family and friends, and even has an accompanying webpage with video clips of the bear species in the book.
The videos are split into bear species to further encourage independent reading and learning.
It makes learning fun and gives a real reason for children to want to read by themselves. Kids will love discovering animal facts to share and enjoy.
The video links mean children come back again and again, naturally developing their reading and learning skills (early kindle models don't support video but the safe website link is given).
Fascinating Facts Include . . .
The giant short-faced bear existed up until 11,000 years ago. It is believed to be the largest carnivorous mammal to have ever lived.
A bear’s sense of smell is seven times better than a bloodhound’s!
In spite of being classified as carnivores, about 75% to 85% of a bear’s diet is made up of plants.
Bears do eat honey, although they do not like it as much as Winnie the Pooh does. In fact, they prefer to eat the baby bees when they do stumble upon a beehive.
Contrary to popular belief, bears are not nocturnal. In fact, most of them are active during the day.
Bears tend to walk in their own tracks. This means that an area frequented by bears may have only one set of tracks, but the paw prints will appear sunken as if they have been beaten into the soil.
