Howl Helps Bella
In the second book in the Howl the Owl Organ Donation Series, Howl’s best friend Bella is sad because her daddy just died. Her mom explains the one thing that brings her comfort is knowing he was an organ donor, and he helped to save other lives. Howl helps Bella understand that her daddy gave the gift of life and helped others. Bella hopes to meet the people her daddy saved someday, but for now Howl gives her his favorite stuffed animal to hug and remind her of her dad.
