What You’ll Love About This Book:

Last month my son was not keeping well for almost a week and he was sleeping almost entire day. He doesn’t want to play but surely want me to read aloud more…..he correlated his situation with this story so much as asked me to read this only many times in a day and what mumma can do so I read this again and again J

This is such a sweet story about what true friendship is about. This story about a bear who feels sick! His friends want him to come out and play, but he feels too unwell to go. His friends come over and comfort him as best they can. I love how much thought is put into the words on the pages. Such a cute way to show kids how to take care of someone who is sick.

Lots of rhyming words which is fun to read. The illustrations are done in acrylic paint. They are absolutely adorable and colorful. The facial expressions are well done. The pictures give you a warm and fuzzy feeling. This story is perfect for a read aloud during illness.
