The two little bear cubs begin life in a happy, loving family, but when their parents break up, they must go into foster care. Dad can't cope with them on his own because he travels, and mum is ill and can't have them either. Eventually they must be adopted. The detail about the two little bears' emotions is moving and feels right, and there is great honesty about the changes they must face. While one knows the complexity of the situation the children find themselves in, the level of explanations seems spot on. The book is available from BAAF, Saffron House, 6-10 Kirby Street, London EC1N 8TS.
Age: 3+
