It is a story of love, bonding, friendship, loss, hope, and healing, and it is heartwarming to see how Cimmy copes with the loss of his human friend Jacob and finds his place with another creature. The love between Bear and Cimmy and how that heals Bear is magical and the story reiterates the power and magic of love. The story has been well executed and all the characters are well portrayed and memorable. The narration is descriptive, making the scenes vivid. The story is filled with warmth and love that transcends boundaries, and shows how it is interconnected and runs through all the creatures living in this world. It is a beautiful storybook for children to read and help them understand the inexplicable bond that exists between plants, animals, and humans.
