Product Description From debut children's author Vanessa Bayer and illustrator Rosie Butcher, How Do You Care for a Very Sick Bear? is a sweet picture book with advice for children―and adults―for dealing with a sick friend. You and your friend Bear are an excellent pair. But if your friend gets sick, And can’t do all the things that you two love to do… You may wonder--how do you care for a very sick Bear? When someone dear is dealing with illness, it's difficult to know what to do or say. The actor Vanessa Bayer experienced this firsthand when she was treated for childhood leukemia. In her first children's book, she offers gentle, reassuring advice that people of all ages will appreciate. Review "Bayer tells the sweet story of two bear friends and offers some gentle advice on how to be the best friend possible when sickness strikes."--Parade Magazine "A tenderly written children’s book that hopes to bridge the gap between patients and pals by teaching kids how to be there for sick friends."--Cleveland Magazine "[Bayer] describes the different things that might happen to the bear physically: 'Your friend might look different; she might have less hair. She might be too tired to play.' Then, it goes into all of the things you can do to help, such as bring cards, play games, or simply just be there. ... A great purchase for... supporting a friend through illness.-- School Library Journal
