A Book of Bears: At home with bears around the world

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Wild At Home - JF

BY KATIE VIGGERS, LAU­RENCE KING, £11.99

Ur­sids are a cul­tural phe­nom­e­non, im­mor­talised in many chil­dren’s char­ac­ters, from Padding­ton and Win­nie-the-Pooh to, er, Bun­gle. So, this fun-filled look at the world’s eight species is a must for any child un­der 10. The il­lus­tra­tions are car­toon-like but there are plenty of hard facts, too. The di­etary de­tails can feel a tri­fle mis­lead­ing (sun bears don’t only eat hon­eyre­lated prod­ucts, surely), but that’s a mi­nor quib­ble.
