When Bear moves into a new home in the woods, his home feels empty, and Bear is a little bit lonely. With a RAT-A-TAT-TAT! on his neighbour’s door, Bear quickly finds a warm smile and friendship with Hare. When a storm CRASHES through the wood, destroying Bear’s home, the two friends discover that home is more than just a house . . . it’s where the heart is.

Exploring the true meaning of belonging, this is the perfect introduction into the joys and complexities of friendship. Another story to treasure for fans of Jonny Lambert’s other books, Little Why, The Great Aaa-Ooo, The Only Lonely Panda and The Big Angry Roar.

Review by Stacey

Home Is Where The Heart Is, is a sweet tale about a bear and a hare. Bear moves in next door to Hare. Bear’s home is large but has no feeling to it, no matter how much he tries to make it homely. Feeling sad he knocks on his neighbour’s door and is invited into Hare’s small and cluttered home.

Although they are both different, Hare is old, Bear is young. Hare is messy, Bear is tidy, the two learn that they enjoy spending time together and all through the seasons they enjoy each other’s company. But then something bad happens to Bear’s home, how will the two cope?

The story is beautifully told and shows the true meaning of friendship and that home is definitely where the heart is. The full-page illustrations throughout are absolutely amazing and capture the story perfectly.

This is a lovely children’s book that reminds me of the kind of stories I read as a child. Touching words surrounded by adorable illustrations and a heart-warming plot.
