One morning, Bear was crying. his best friend, a little bird, was dead.
A beautiful picture book about loneliness, loss - and new beginnings.
One morning the bear was crying. His friend, the little bird, was dead. When the little bird dies, the bear is inconsolable. Full of grief, he locks himself in his house and ventures out again only when the smell of young spring grass blows through his window. He meets a wildcat and finally feels understood. As the cat plays on her violin, the bear remembers all the beauty that he has experienced with the little bird. Now he can bury his friend, because he knows he'll always have his memories.
This is a lovely story written by Kazumi Yumoto and beautifully illustrated by Komako Sakai both from Tokyo, Japan.
