The Boy and the Bear

The Boy and the Bear by Tracey Corderoy, illustrated by Sarah Massini is a lovely story about making and keeping friends. Boy and Bear are both alone but thanks to paper boat messages find each other. After trial and error, they discover wonderful projects to do together until the fateful day that bear has to go. Is he leaving forever? The boy’s patient waiting is of course rewarded when spring comes. The illustrations are a delight.
