Item description for We Are Wolves (We Are...) (We Are...) by Lucia Guarnotta Molly Grooms...
In this delightful story, two young wolf cubs explore their new world with Uncle Wolf. He teaches them all about being wolves, and their mother is very proud of them. They learn to be watchers and listeners and travelers and hunters. But most important of all, they learn about their pack and being a family.
"We are watchers. We are travelers. We are listeners. We are hunters. We are family. We are keepers. We are wolves."
When two wolf cubs are left with their uncle while the rest of the pack goes out to hunt, they receive a daylong lesson in what it means to be a wolf. Uncle Wolf encourages them to listen more deeply, and they realize there are more sounds than they ever thought the world could hold. He tells them to look carefully, and they discover sights they had never observed before. The learning goes on, and the cubs' initial disappointment at not being included in the hunt disappears as the special world of the wolf is opened up for them.
Human cubs will love "running" with the wolf cubs as they explore the splendid world the wolves inhabit. Lucia Guarnotta's highly detailed illustrations capture the noble nature of these loving and playful animals. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

Great art, Great story, Must HAVE Jan 2, 2003
Finaly a book that shows wolves in a good light for kids. No more BIG BAD WOLF syndrom. This book shows wolves as they really are. The story and the art are both fantastic. I am glad I stumbled on this book by chance, but I recommend it to everyone, especaily to wolf lovers who have kids and want to share that passion.

“We Are Wolves” combines a fun, insightful story with incredible illustrations. What a joy it was to discover this book! The reader is taken on a wonderful adventure with two wolves cubs as they learn from their uncle how noble it is to be a wolf. The detailed illustrations make the adventure almost touchable.

Parents should feel great about sharing this with your kids since the lessons the cubs learn include careful listening, skilled observation, faithfulness and more. ...this book would make a great gift!
A Delightful Book Jul 9, 2000
We Are Wolves, is a beautiful meaningful story. The motherwolf needs to go hunting with the pack and leaves her two young wolveswith Uncle Wolf. The young wolves aren't too sure that spending the day with Uncle Wolf will be fun. But Uncle Wolf comes through for them. He shows them all the wonders of their forest habitat and the young wolves come to appreciate their heritage and destiny.
The story is valuable example of how extended family members can help raise the children. There is also a strong message of the importance of male role models (not just fathers) and male childcare providers. The story also brings environmental issues to foreground with it's explanation for why wolves need to hunt.
The visual effect of the text compliments the breathtaking illustrations. Pre-readers will enjoy looking at this book and making up their own story, beginning readers can read the large print phrases and fluent readers will enjoy the the combinations.
This would be an excellent book to give as a gift from an uncle to neices and nephews.
