story by marian parks | illustrations by Christine Karron

Yosemite bears are brave mountaineers—all except Berto who’s terrified of heights! He’s also afraid of a bully named Buck, who torments him and makes fun of his rock collection. Berto’s problems only get worse until finally he learns that, just like the rocks, he has strength of his own.

Children will delight in Berto’s romp through Yosemite’s meadows, rivers, and forests. Along the way they’ll discover that they, too, have strengths of their own.
