"Three Bears of the Pacific Northwest," by Washington authors Marcia and Richard Vaughan, is a lush look at the animals and wildernesses of the Northwest that will entrance most children... The book is aimed at ages 4 to 8, but Mom and Dad may be tempted to sneak an extra peek after bedtime just to savor the pictures, especially if they've spent time in similar places.
Begin a picture book with the words "High in the Cascade Mountains" and get on our good side. The engaging adventure tale features two real Northwest bears who help find the boy belonging to a small blue teddy who's fallen out of a trailer. The Vaughans of Vashon Island also deliver solid information about regional flora and fauna. Seattle resident Trammell paints an evocative picture of the Northwest.
