Annotation

This is a book that is so much more than a story of two bears. It is a beautifully illustrated story of friendship, family, loss and homecoming. Ottley’s illustrations exude a softness and warmth that draws the reader into the story of finding a home. The two bears remember the before, the waiting and finally a new home with a little girl who understands the ‘secret language of bears’. This simple story also reflects the life of refugees and as such is suitable for older readers as they begin to understand that not all people have a safe place to live
