"Black bear, black bear, what do you see? I see a princess and prince smiling at me."
In her first school assignment of the year, Laurel brought home Black Bear for the night. She took care of him, made sure he was safe and buckled in the car ride home, searched for pajamas that might fit him, and danced with him to the Wiggles. Black Bear even helped Laurel feel better when she tripped on the sidewalk on the way to the car. Then her mother wrote about her adventure in Black Bear's journal. Laurel's mom drew a picture of a bear and Laurel colored him black. As pictured, Brant benefited from the assignment as well. Black Bear is nice to little brothers, too!
