"A hungry little bear is trapped inside a dumpster. His distraught mama bear can't fish him out. Thankfully, a boy and his mother, camping nearby, come to the rescue. Although everyone in this story is scared, they are able to act with courage and compassion--showing readers that it's OK to be scared. This simple, moving story is told with variations on a single phrase: "He was scared." Readers are encouraged to be observant and put together the pieces of narrative, based on visual cues such as expressions, body language, and details hidden in the colourful illustrations. A simple, beautiful picture book that normalizes fear, with the repetition of just one sentence!"--

Two parallel stories of a boy and a bear cub who are both scared. Their story intersects when they end up helping each other in the end. Illustrations set the story at a camping trip in the woods. Simplistic and lovely.
