LOUISVILLE — This week marks the release of Flyaway Books’ latest picture book, “Where Is Home, Daddy Bear?”

Written and illustrated by Nicola O’Byrne, this charming picture book with endearing bears tells the tale of a single dad and a young cub named Evie Bear who are moving to a new home. Throughout their journey to their new home, Evie Bear’s dad answers her various questions about the move, reassuring her with wise and comforting words.

According to a news release from Presbyterian Publishing Corporation, this simple yet thoughtful tale encourages children to consider the true meaning of home and ultimately reveals that home is found whenever you are with the people you love most. “Where Is Home, Daddy Bear?” is ideal for children ages 3-7.

“With its rich visuals and workmanlike text, this picture book can be read aloud to children who must adjust to a new home at an early age,” says Kirkus Reviews.
