WellRead May Kids Selection: Wolf and Bear by Kate Rolfe

WellRead May Kids Selection: Wolf and Bear by Kate Rolfe

One of the best feelings in the world is having a friend you can always count on. This month, we’re meeting Wolf and Bear. They’re best friends but they know that being friends is not just about having fun and laughing together on the good days. They know that it’s important to love each other and stick around even when things are hard. 

Bear has some big feelings that get in the way of going out to play with Wolf. He hides himself away and Wolf tries everything to get his friend out of the shadows and ready to play again. 

Wolf and Bear is a story with a big heart, showing us what real friendship looks like and acknowledging that emotions are an important and, often, unpredictable part of life, not something to be ignored. 

Extra things to think and do: 

  • Wolf and Bear like to do lots of activities together, what do you like to do with your friends?

  • You might not have Wolf to sing a beautiful song to you, but is there anything that cheers you up when you’re sad?

  • In his shadow, Bear shuts down Wolf’s offer to go and play, which makes Wolf feel sad. Have you ever upset a friend accidentally? Did they forgive you?

  • Have you ever had a friend who needed cheering up? What did you do to be a good friend to them?

  • What does a good friend look like to you?
