Bear Island

Louise and her family are sad over the loss of their beloved dog, Charlie. "Life will not be the same," Louise says, as she visits a little island that Charlie loved.

But on a visit to the island after Charlie's death, something strange happens: She meets a bear. At first, she's afraid, but soon she realizes that the bear is sad, too. As Louise visits more often, she realizes that getting over loss takes time. And just when she starts to feel better, it's time for Bear to bed down for the winter.

Once again, Louise believes that life will not be the same. But sometimes, things can change for the better, and on the first warm day of spring, her family welcomes a new member. Here is a lovely, poignant story about loss and healing that will bring comfort to even the youngest readers.

Description

"The bear, Louise sees in his defeated posture and sad expression, has also suffered a loss.... Vignettes show the two as they travel through their grief together: 'Some days, only Louise was better. Some days, only Bear was better.' But both heal, slowly, a change traced across the seasons via an imperceptible transformation to full color. In a story that respects grief’s slow pace, Cordell’s writing and artwork together carry grace, economy, and heart." — Publishers Weekly
