Ages 4-9

A beautiful portrait of deep friendship and loss and told through the story of a real friendship between two iconic polar bears. Gus and Ida spend their days in a big park in the middle of an even bigger city. Ida is right there. Always. Then, one sad day, Gus learns that Ida is very sick, and she isn't going to get better. The friends help each other face the difficult news with whispers, sniffles, cuddles, and even laughs. Slowly Gus realizes that even after Ida is gone, she will still be with him — through the sounds of their city, and the memories that live in their favorite spots.
