  • Episode Description
  • Cleo is leaving the library to visit Aunt Priscilla and Uncle Otto, who have just had three new cubs. Leona, feeling that she's too big to miss her Mom, tries to accept what's happening. She finds, however, that she is in fact missing her Mom, though she communicates it through her stuffed animal, Lovey. Lionel and Theo also struggle with their feelings about this, as well as getting the library ready for their mother's absence. To ease everyone's feelings, Cleo reads I Miss You, Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt; illustrated by Cyd Moore.moreless
