by Jeremy Munson

Overview
While walking with Mommy Bear one day in the forest, Baby Billy Bear finds himself lost and alone. With no one there to teach him to fish and collect berries, Billy resorts to eating only honey (despite the many bee stings he encounters!). When Billy grows up, he starts a family of his own only to realize that he is unable to provide for them properly. Billy makes the hard choice to temporarily leave his family so that he can earn the experience, knowledge, and skills required to provide for his family. Beneath the surface, Billy Bear is a story of childhood trauma and neglect leading to unhealthy coping mechanisms later in life (e.g., addiction), the widespread effects of childhood trauma on others (namely, family members), and the struggle to learn healthy coping mechanisms and life skills.
