“The book’s tremendous heart shines through. Readers should enjoy this sweet, memorable story.” BlueInk Review

How do two friends feel about/after ending a friendship that has meant a lot to them and rekindling it years later? Bernadette I. Bernal wrote a sweet and touching story around this premise in “The Girl and the Bear” (Newman Springs; 2021).

“The Girl and the Bear” tells the story of a girl and a bear cub, whom the author calls “Girl” and “Bear,” respectively. Girl and Bear are best friends, and they love to play, tell stories, sit in a big oak tree, and visit the ocean. They promise to be best friends forever.

However, as time would have it, they change as they age. Girl tells Bear they cannot be friends anymore. So, they part, both enduring a painful separation. It will be many years before they see each other again. What will become of their reunion?

“The Girl and the Bear” has been well-received by book review publication BlueInk Review for its narrative storytelling, immersive illustrations, and universal appeal. It calls it “a touching story… told in a simple, kid-friendly way… (and) open to interesting interpretations that could encompass puberty, aspects of diversity, and societal approval. The decision to leave the girl and bear unnamed lends the book universal appeal.”

The rest of the review reads: “The writing is often graceful, as when Bear is described as ‘her best friend that she loves from the moon to the shores and back,’ and the full-color art adds to the book’s beauty. For example, one page shows Bear growing and indicates seasons passing with subtle elements: vines growing, leaves falling, snow around a tree.”
