“Bear Came Along”

 

Once there was a river flowing through a forest. The river didn’t know it was capable of adventures until a big bear came along. But adventures aren’t any fun by yourself, and so enters Froggy, Turtles, Beaver, Racoons, and Duck. These very different animals take off downstream, but they didn’t know they needed one another until, thankfully, the river came along. A Caldecott Honor Book.

 

WATCH and LISTEN to Richard T. Morris read his book Bear Came Along, illustrated by LeUyen Pham, for B&N Storytime:

 

SONG: The Bear Went Over the Mountain

The bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain,
To see what he could see.
And all that he could see,
And all that he could see,
Was the other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain,
Was all that he could see.

 

SONG: Hug Your Bear (tune: Row Row Row Your Boat)

Hug, hug, hug your bear
Squeeze him very tight
Hold him high and help him fly
Then hug with all your might.

 

SONG: Bears (tune: Mary Had A Little Lamb)

Grizzly bears are big and brown,
Big and brown, big and brown,
Grizzly bears are big and brown,
And live in the woods.

Polar bears are big and white,
Big and white, big and white,
Polar bears are big and white,
And live where it’s cold.

Teddy bears are just my size,
Just my size, just my size,
Teddy bears are just my size,
To cuddle with at night.
