Kodi by Jared Cullum
An accident in Alaska leads Katya to meet a kodiak bear, with whom she strikes up an unlikely friendship. But then she must return home to Seattle, leading Kodi to make a journey to reunite with his friend.
Ms. Faith says: “Kodi is such a sweet story of three outsiders who find a purpose and a friendship with each other. The illustrations are soft and beautiful watercolor and the story is sweet, purposeful, and touching. I must read for anyone with fifteen minutes to spare in their day.”
