It's a bright and beautiful day at the lake where a boy and his mother are camping. The boy is just a little scared of jumping into the water. At the same time, not too far away, a hungry bear cub is a little scared of diving deep into a dumpster, where tasty snacks await. Later, when the boy encounters a distraught mama bear sniffing around the dumpster, he's very scared. But so is her bear cub, who is trapped inside Bold, graphic artwork moves the narrative along in this mostly-wordless book full of sound effects and simple variations on a single phrase full of so many meanings ("He was scared"). Parallel stories of the mother and son, and mama and cub, come together when the campers, despite being scared, help rescue the cub from the dumpster. This simple, moving story invites readers to observe expressions, body language, and details hidden in the illustrations to follow the narrative. It's a sweet summer read that normalizes fear and encourages acting with courage and compassion--even when you're scared.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Andrée PoulinPublisher: OwlkidsPublished: 03/15/2019ISBN: 9781771473651Pages: 32Weight: 1.05lbsSize: 11.40h x 8.80w x 0.50dReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 01/15/2019 pg. 109Publishers Weekly 12/24/2018School Library Journal 03/01/2019 pg. 89Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2019 - Recommended, Satisfactory
