Synopsis

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.

Reviews

Books for Keeps
