Read full description of the books Penguin and Pinecone:This story illustrates the bittersweet task of supporting the people we love, even if it means losing them.
Penguin is having lots of fun with his new friend Pinecone, but when he realizes that Pinecone can't grow up big and strong planted in the ice, he carries him on his sled, all the way home to the forest. But just as the ice is no place for a pinecone, a forest is no place for a penguin, so Penguin has to leave Pinecone behind.
This also applies to more intimate relationships: We all thrive in different circumstances, and sometimes two people, even if they have a lot of fun together, don't necessarily have compatible lifestyles or goals. we all need different things to help us grow. In that sense, sometimes loving someone means losing them, or at least sacrificing some closeness to them.
When some time has passed, Penguin decides to go visit Pinecone, and finds that his friend has grown into a mighty pine tree. They play for a while, but once again, the two have to go their separate ways.
And that's just it. Even though it hurts to be separated, it's the only way to keep a true connection alive. It would be a sham friendship if Pinecone stayed in the cold, and never grew, just so they could be together. Just as it would have been unhealthy for Penguin to try and be something he's not, by staying in the warm forest. Sometimes, you just reach a crossroads with a friend, and it's not that you're no longer friends, you just have different needs.
But they realize that even though they are far apart, they still carry each other in their hearts
