CBC Books picks A Bubble as a best kids book of 2018

“The best Canadian YA and children's literature of 2018” / CBC Books / January 2, 2019

Geneviève Castrée finished this board book as she neared the end of her life and left it as a gift for her two-year-old daughter. The book is a loving look at a mother and child's days together, living in a protective bubble, as the parent struggles with cancer. The book offers a beautiful and moving contemplation of what it means to love and to grieve at a young age. Castrée died in 2016 of pancreatic cancer.
