Bear’s House of Books
Four young friends living in the big woods — a fox, a mouse, a hedgehog, and a rabbit — have a tradition of reading a storybook together every single night at bedtime. It’s always the same storybook, and they love it though it’s worn and scuffed. It is the only book they have, and they have had it since they were very young. One morning Mouse has a great idea. Maybe they should get another book. But none of the friends has any idea where to get a book. They don’t think they can dig one up nor do they think they fall from the sky, so they pack some lunch and set out searching the woods. Wonder of wonders, they find a lovely red book. They immediately sit down and read it. They love this new book but discover it belongs to Bear. They know they must return it.
