  • About the Edition

    As human population centers sprawl out into once open lands, and as conservation efforts help devastated wildlife populations recover, humans are having more frequent interactions with large and often dangerous wild animals. This book examines the reasons for and often violent consequences of these encounters; it might have you rethinking your decision to buy a home in that convenient new subdivision.

    Backyard Bears is my photo journal of a full year and a half life story of wild cubs that were born on my land and raised by their mother. When I first saw the cubs in May of , they were 4 months old and maybe 15 pounds. When they last crossed my path in December they were pounds.   From wildlife spotting to campfire cooking to stargazing, there are so many memories to be made while camping. Whether they plan to pitch their tents atop a mountain, in the woods, at a favorite campground, or even in the backyard, get students excited to get back to nature with some of our favorite camping books for kids.

    This leaves Bear with a bit of a dilemma, as he still needs a book to read for his club, but it could take a while for Jeremiah to bring the right book. Bear decides to search the Big Blue House for another book to read. As he goes about his search, he finds that everybody in the Big Blue House has ideas on books that he could read.   The Bear in our Backyard is a companion picture book to last year’s popular The Lion in our Living Room. Whereas the lion was an imaginative version of their father, the bear in this book turns out to be the mother. Once again, this book is a delightful example of the interplay between text and illustrations in the picture book form.

      These videos reveal the unbelievable scene in Rockaway Township, New Jersey when a mother bear and her five cubs decided to throw a pool party. The bears splash around in a backyard swimming pool. Get this from a library! Backyard bear. [Jim Murphy; Jeffrey Greene] -- After developers encroach upon its forest home, a young black bear wanders into a neighborhood and creates chaos in the middle of a peaceful summer night.
