"Everyone Has Hope" is a picture book about help and hope for anyone who has lost someone that they love, told through Clarington the bear in a way a child would understand. Clarington loses his best friend Lily suddenly and finds it unbearable to go on. Clarington wondered if it was his fault that Lily died. He didn't understand why this happened and his mind was full of guilt. Finally he got together with other bear friends who knew her and missed her, too. They decided to celebrate Lily's life with happiness, and made a plan to do so. What they plan will bring all the friends closer than they ever imagined. They find they can cope with the emptiness of Lily, yet never forgetting her.

"Everyone Has Hope" is a must have book for every child's collection, and can be read over and over again. The illustrations are very distinct and complement the story very nicely.

Two projects are added at the end of the story for your child to engage in open conversation about grief, healing and unending love. A Butterfly craft and a Teddy Bear Hand Puppet craft are at the end of the story. Please visit www.bearsofhope.blogspot.com for more information about the author Jason Lynch.
