Caring for Mama Bear is a beautifully written and illustrated story of enduring love, and is perfect for families served by hospice and palliative care organizations. The book provides a gentle springboard for children to talk about illness and death in a way that helps them to find comfort and hope, as well as bring comfort and hope to those around them. In the story, seasons come and go, and Mama Bear is getting worse, not better. Despite her declining health, her days are sprinkled with sunshine, compassion, and laughter, thanks to the thoughtfulness of her two wonderful sons, the Brother Bears. Mama Bear spends her last weeks at Hospice House, a special place where everyone makes sure she is always comfortable and feels loved. The Brother Bears visit her daily and tell her how much they love her-and always will.
