ACHUKA Book of the Day 11 Jun 2021
“breath-taking illustrations” Just Imagine
“Delicate, timeless artwork also cleverly incorporates all sorts of satisfying details to explore and discuss. It’s an uplifting book, about treasuring our precious memories as we move forward. Particularly touching is the way it is Jack himself who recognises that there are other children who may need a Bear in their lives to share their secrets and adventures.” BookTrust
Jack and Bear are the best of friends. Jack loves Bear because he makes him feel brave. But one day Bear disappears and Jack suddenly feels all alone with a big Bear-shaped hole in his heart.
Word soon gets around that Bear is missing and Jack starts to receive kind messages from strangers all over the world. Then the toy bears start to arrive. Though the bears start to heal Jack’s sadness, none of them are Jack’s bear. Perhaps there is something Jack can do with them to help the other people with bear-shaped holes…
A beautiful story of love, loss, and moving forward, inspired by the true story of Jack and his beloved Bear.
