"It's summer, and Mama, Papa and little Orsa Bear are picnicking in the woods. Papa tells Orsa how they used to scare animals into traps by roaring. He challenges Orsa to roar, but ridicules him when he isn't loud or scary enough. Papa's own roar is so loud and scary Orsa cowers in fright. As the weather turns colder food is scarce, and Papa's temper flares easily. It seems Mama and Orsa can't do anything right...Mama and Orsa visit Doctor Owl for advice. With her help, they set out on a path toward a new beginning--one that will hopefully include Papa, too. Told in comic book style, this indispensable guide for parents and caregivers provides a gentle, non-threatening approach to talking with children about family violence."--P. [4] of cover.
