A stunning and uplifting picture book celebrating the special bond between a parent and child. There are many amazing things - faraway stars that glitter and gleam and snowflakes that melt to a tear - but nothing is as wonderful as a mother's love for her child. Yes, the world's full of treasure and fabulous sights, but when bear finds her cub, who was lost in the night, she cuddles him warm and cuddles him close, and knows, above all, that love matters most. A story of love, family, the power of hope, and our longing to be close to those people who matter to us, beautifully illustrated. www.mijkelly.com
