Bear Double Sided MockupBear was the name of Grandpa’s favourite chair. It was big and brown and furry. It had buttons that made the chair go up and down, and even helped you stand. But what made it really special was the memories that lingered around it long after Grandpa was gone.

Bear is a tender and comforting tale for young readers that celebrates life and the significance of the moments we hold dear when a loved one passes away. Bear explores themes of love, loss and connection in a life-affirming and uplifting tale, reminding us that those we cherish are never more than a memory away.
