Book Details


FIRST WE’LL WORK, AND THEN WE’LL PLAY! Grizzly Adams and the Bridge to the Meadow is a magical mountain tale featuring Grizzly Adams and his animal friends, including his lovable grizzly bear, Ben; his playful dog, Rambler; and his brainy muse, Earl the Squirrel. A sunrise from “deep inside the forest” sets the stage for Grizzly Adams and his furry friends to repair a bridge that leads to a beautiful meadow, and their successful effort bring all good things together at the end of the day. Penned in rhyme and wonderfully illustrated, Grizzly Adams and the Bridge to the Meadow (ages 3 to 7) teaches the effectiveness of teamwork, overcoming challenges, and the satisfaction achieved by accomplishing important goals. It is the first of a series of children’s books offering new Grizzly Adams stories for both young and old to enjoy. The Grizzly Adams® Company is a business partner of The Vital Ground Foundation, a nonprofit land trust that conserves and connects habitat for grizzly bears and other wildlife. A percentage of the proceeds from this book go directly to the Vital Ground Foundation.
