We all need a friend who will help us out at times and when that friend goes way beyond their ‘comfort zone’ it’s even more special.

Bear and Spider are great friends but they are very different. Spider loves being outdoors with the breeze, the smells, the plants not to mention the bugs 😊. Bear, on the other hand, is more of a homebody who enjoys pottering around the house tidying and sitting comfortably with a cup of tea.

Bear has absolutely no desire to go out with Spider to fly his kite. He has his own plans for the day, none of which involve the great outdoors.  When Spider’s kite is caught up in the gusty wind and blows away of course Bear will help look for it but he grumbles all the way. The forest is full of horrible stuff like itchy plants, pesky weeds and cold rain and even Spider is starting to have enough of nature when at last as the rain clears and the pair look up to the sky there it is! At last the kite is found! Back home the two friends settle back in the comfy armchair with their tea and both fly kites from its warm cosiness.

True friends help each other even when they are opposites. This is a terrific story to explore that idea with little humans.

Highly recommended for readers from around 3 years upwards.
