Grades K-3 | Authors Kathleen Dent ad Alli DePuy present Bear in the Bathtub - Mar 11, 2020 12:10pm EST
About this event:
Mia is a curious girl, and the thing she loves most is being outdoors in the big, beautiful world. Every day Mia races out the door, eager to explore, experiment, play, and learn. And every day she is reluctant to come back inside. There is just too much tromping and tramping and discovering to do! She doesn’t want to end her fun–not even for dinner, and ESPECIALLY not for a bath. Mia’s in luck, though, because every night she finds a bear in the bathtub, so her skeptical mom is forced to send her off to bed without a bath. But WHAT is that bear doing in the bathtub, anyway? Elementary and middle school students from across the United States were asked to imagine just that. Their artwork combines with that of Alli DePuy to bring lively text from Kathleen Dent to life. A non-fiction section based on the research of Dr. Michael Sawaya, a carnivore ecologist with Sinopah Wildlife Research Associates, explains the science behind bathing bears everywhere and why it is important to understand their behavior in our changing climate.
