I’m so excited to share this book by Brenda Guiberson and Ed Young with you. I’ve learned through Animals Asia that moon bears are beautiful, interesting, and intriguing creatures. The art in this moon bear book is just as gorgeous as they are. I love how the drawings have so many interesting details, and you can find new corners within the art to discover every time you read it.
Simple idea: Buy this moon bear book!
The drawings are almost like collages of different pieces of paper glued on top of each other. The rich colors and implied texture on a flat glossy page are just phenomenal. It really draws you in, and I think this makes a beautiful coffee table book that spurs great “animal saving conversation”. What we all live for right? ;-)
Although the beauty of this book is what drew me in, the text is really great too. It walks you through the journey of a wild moon bear coming out of hibernation in the Spring, until she comes out again the following Spring.
We get to learn about the various moon bear habits by season. And it’s simple enough to read to your kids. Moon bears are rarely actually seen in the wild, so this is a cool way to learn about their lives. It’s a fun, beautiful read. And it looks pretty on the shelf too (with or without the book jacket). I hope you’ll enjoy it!
I found this book on Animals Asia’s website last year. It’s no longer available on their site, but if you want to shop other goodies to support them, click here.

Share a photo or video if you get the book. I’d love to see how it resonates with your kids.
