Henderson, Nevada – June 28, 2022 – The loss of a loved one is difficult for anybody to deal with, but kids need some special support to get through the trauma that a death can bring. Once in a while, a Children’s Book is published that is more than just a story with great drawings.
The new book by Noted Children’s Book Author, Masami S.C., is just such a book. The Loss of a Loved One is the third book of the Brown Bear & Oofie series. In The Loss of a Loved One, Brown Bear’s Grandma, Mimi, has died. Brown Bear is crying hysterically about her Mimi, Grandma, passing away. Oofie helps Brown Bear with emotional support and they discuss the topic of death together. Oofie, who was also close to Mimi, shares the sorrow but comforts Brown Bear throughout the book with different ideas about what happens when a loved one leaves this world.
During a recent interview, Masami S.C. made these comments, “I want to bring awareness to kids so they know they aren’t alone. My topics are social issues/ life learning lessons. I want the parents to be involved and read my books with their kids and have valid conversations and open the doorways to communicating better with them”.
She goes on to say, “So many young kids these days are consumed with social media and technology and miss out on learning valuable lessons in life while being disconnected from their parents. Brown Bear & Oofie are meant to look as if a child of a similar age drew them. I believe the young readers can connect more this way.”
- In Brown Bear & Oofie: The Verbal Bully, Oofie, a purple doggie, has been bullied with mean and hurtful words. Brown Bear helps Oofie overcome her feeling of sadness by being a supportive best friend. Will Oofie overcome her sadness from being bullied? Will she discover how to cope with it? Find out and join Brown Bear and Oofie on their adventure.
- In Brown Bear & Oofie: The Lost Identity, Brown Bear learns the importance of staying true to her own identity and not changing who she is in order to fit in with her friends. Brown Bear & Oofie have just been playing with their friend Herman. Herman is described to the reader as having a lot of freckles and Oofie admires his uniqueness. Brown Bear mistakenly thinks that looking more like Herman will make her cool like him. After a hilarious act of change, Brown Bear learns from Oofie that being like someone else does not make her cool and that being unique and an individual is what makes her special.
