Description

Two children half a world away from each other are connected in an unexpected way.
Way, way up north in a snow-covered world, a young girl is surprised when, instead of a fish on the end of her fishing line, there is a small, brightly painted wooden bird. Day after day her fishing pole brings up more colorful surprises. When visiting the fishing hole for the last time, she drops a little wooden bear into the water. Far away, a young boy walks along a beach in the hot, hot sun. He throws a colorful object into the water. Then something catches his eye. A small wooden bear washed up on the beach.
Karin Littlewood has crafted a simple, affecting story of how individuals around the world connect and enrich each other's lives. Her beautiful watercolor illustrations vibrantly depict the story's shifting locations--from the frozen Arctic to the tropical shoreline.
