A gentle and beautifully illustrated story about the bereavement of a loved one. Little Bear sees the patterns of living and dying in the natural world and learns to accept them.
Are You Sad, Little Bear? by Rachel Rivett
Grandmother Bear has gone for ever, so it's no wonder that Little Bear is feeling sad. His mother wisely suggests that perhaps the Wildwood can help him understand his loss. Little Bear's day of exploring and asking questions brings him comfort and hope.
Gently philosophical and full of autumn colour… lyrical in both text and illustration
