I Love You as Big as a Rainbow
Small Bear is prancing along the river when a big raindrop falls on him, followed by lots more raindrops. Small Bear is sad until Big Bear points out a beautiful rainbow streaked across the sky. When the rain stops, the rainbow melts away. Small Bear is disappointed. He wanted to keep the rainbow, but Big Bear says they can make their own rainbow. The two bears search through the forest for just what they need. First, the red flowers that Big Bear says are as deep and strong as her love for Small Bear. Next, they find orange and yellow leaves that represent Small Bear’s sense of fun. Green grass seems boring to Small Bear until Big Bear points out it is always growing, just like her love for Small Bear. They go on to find blue, indigo, and violet.
