If I Weren’t With You Hardcover – Picture Book, 4 April 2017
by Rosie J Pova (Author)

“Mama, if I weren’t born, what would you do?” Willy starts a conversation with mama Bear while he’s on the move, acting like a natural youngster. In a series of simple and direct questions, the bear cub seeks and receives his mother’s reassurance of love and security as the two take a walk in the forest. Mama Bear uses imagery of the forest to communicate her feelings to her cub.

Review
“A sweet bedtime tale reminiscent of “Guess How Much I Love You?” that explores important themes of fear and loss in a gentle and accessible way.” Karla Valenti

“This sweet lyrical story, reminiscent of The Runaway Bunny, will delight children as well as adults. When little Willy asks Mama Bear what she would do if he weren’t here his mom responds using comparative poetry expressing her vast love for him.” –Claire Lordon, Author and Illustrator of Lorenzo, the Pizza-Loving Lobster
