Which animals spend 10 to 16 hours a day eating 20 to 40 pounds of bamboo a day? Giant pandas, of course. They are bears that live only in certain parts of China. They are big and strong, with males weighing 250 pounds, but when they are first born, they weigh only as much as an ice cream sandwich. These cubs cannot walk until they are 3 months old and stay with their mothers until they are 2 to 3 years old. Do you wonder why pandas look as they do with black and white fur? This combination of colors might help pandas hide from their enemies in the snowy and rocky forests. Did you know that pandas cannot run very fast? Well, then what do they do to get somewhere quicker? Why, they roll and tumble around. Pandas are excellent swimmers and are such good tree climbers that they sometimes sleep up in the treetops. Come learn more about these shy and cute animals in this colorful book.  (May Harn Liu, librarian)
