السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Book Review: It's time for Bear's friend Caterpillar to spin his cocoon. Bear won't see Caterpillar for a while and Bear is worried. Will Caterpillar be okay in there? When will Bear see him again?

Being a good friend, Bear checks on Caterpillar when it rains, when it's awfully windy and when it cold and snowy. Each time, Caterpillar reassures Bear that he is fine and that there is nothing for Bear to worry about but.....Bear is worried.

Mouse manages to help Bear stop worrying when he tells Bear that Caterpillar is just sleeping. Then Bear finds Caterpillar's empty cocoon on the ground one day and he starts worrying all over again.

Bear's worries come to an end when....

I won't spoil it for you but I will suggest that you visit your local library and check out Don't Worry Bear. But here is a hint: there is a beautiful silky moth at the end who helps bring the story to a comfortable satisfying end. 

Until the next read insha'Allaah....
