“The Bear Ate Your Sandwich”

 

By now I think you know what happened to your sandwich.
But you may not know how it happened.
So let me tell you.
It all started with the bear . . .

 

WATCH and LISTEN to “The Bear Ate Your Sandwich” by Julia Sarcone-Roach, presented by Brightly 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: “Bears”

(tune: Mary Had A Little Lamb)

Grizzly bears are 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.

 

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.
