Bears, Bears, and More Bears!


Bear Portraits is exactly as the title states: it's a book of photographic portraits of bears! Not exactly the kind of book you find yourself searching for purposely (unless you're a bear fanatic, that is), but a happy find nonetheless.

Nuance in a Bear's Expression

From the humorous polar bear to the terrifying grizzly, these bears pull off a lot of emotion! With its unique premise and attractive cover, I had to pick it up, take it home, and set it on my coffee table for a week of household browsing and enjoyment.

Just one of the many odd treasures lurking in your local library stacks!
