A beautiful, beguiling tale about adapting to change and finding your place. Especially comforting during this time of social distancing and uncertainty about the future.
"Imaginative and poetically resonant." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Considers nature's way of connecting us to ourselves and to others...poetically expresses feelings of dislocation, vulnerability, and strength." -- Quill & Quire, starred review
Oh, to be a bear in the forest! To rest and play, day after day, always feeling safe and at home. But when change fills the air, and it's time to journey into a different kind of wilderness, will it ever feel the same?
This sensitively imagined story illuminates the difficult transitions we all must face as we learn how to be at home in the world.
