Parrino will be reading from the book Gus, the Feeling-Better Polar Bear, which is based, in part, on Gus of the Central Park Zoo in NYC where he formerly was the beloved main attraction. At one time or another, we all feel "under the weather" and look forward to feeling better. In the story, Gus follows Dr.Kim's advice about how to do just that and is healed by the generosity of so many caring people around the world. He feels better, not because of the actual gifts he receives, but because the people around him make him feel loved. The first book of a six book children's wellness set, Gus the Feeling-Better Polar Bear focuses on emotional wellness. The Spanish version El Oso Polar Se Siente Mejor is also available.
