This hardbound, full-color children's book brings to life the remarkable true story of a bear — inspired by God — saving the life of the Russian New Martyr, Metropolitan Peter of Krutitsy.

Infused with prayer and evocative watercolor illustrations, this warm tale will engage the eyes and hearts of young children, while revealing the fruits of the Jesus Prayer.

The author-illustrator is the wife of a Russian Orthodox priest, an accomplished artist, and an iconographer. 48 pages.

An eBook edition is also available through Amazon Kindle.

Published with the blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilarion of Eastern America and New York.
