She was eventually offered a job creating art for a children's show, where some of the children asked her if she had ever considered doing a children's books. Her first book, Willy and His Wheel Wagon, was published in 1975. Since then she has written and illustrated more than 170 non-fiction books for children including Nature's Green Umbrella: Tropical Rain Forests.

Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 2. Once again, Gibbons makes science exciting and accessible for children. On each page are clear watercolor-and-ink pictures and a few lines of simple text that pack in a lot of information: facts about diet, habitat, and hibernation; how the bears nurse, raise, and protect their cubs; and their status under the 1975 Endangered Species Act. The back page summary of grizzly bear footprints includes 10 small pictures and snippets of essential information, including concise advice about protecting oneself if threatened by a grizzly. There's one grammatical error in these instructions: readers are advised to lay on the ground, roll up in a ball, and lay perfectly still. That tiny misstep aside, the book is an excellent introduction. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2003 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 4-With her usual clear writing and inviting artwork, Gibbons provides a solid introduction to these impressive mammals. The mostly full-page watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations amplify the information presented in the text and provide colorful glimpses of the creatures' woodland habitat. Readers learn about where grizzlies once roamed and now live, their size and amazing speed, various physical features that enable their survival, what and how much they eat, and their seasonal habits and life cycle. The author finishes with a discussion about current efforts to protect these animals from extinction. The final page gives interesting facts about grizzlies. Additional information is provided in insets and in the captions. Simple range maps and labeled diagrams complete the package.-Sally Bates Goodroe, formerly at Harris County Public Library, Houston, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
