In this sweet and gentle picture book, Bear wakes one day to find his Smile gone and enlists his friends to help him find it.
Bear and Smile are always together. They wake up together, swim by the waterfall together, and eat honey together. But one day, Bear wakes up and Smile is nowhere to be found. With the help of his woodland friends, will Bear be able to find his Smile again?
This tender and special debut picture book explores sadness with a light touch and shows that sometimes a good friend can make all the difference.
Ellen Tarlow lives in Sunnyside, Queens, with her husband, David (a painter), and Frankie (a cat). Most mornings she goes to her job as an early literacy specialist where she gets to work with children’s books all day. Riding a bike, the arrival of spring, and encouraging animals to talk (on paper) are some of the things that make her smile.
