Bears. Where would folklore and popular culture be without them? Goldielocks and the Three Bears has a better ring to it than Goldielocks and the Three Puppies. Many children loved watching Winnie the Pooh and playing with their teddy bears. Older children and young adults enjoy reading modern retellings of the legends East of Sun, West of Moon and Snow White and Red Rose. I have to admit that I use to love to collect teddy bears (although I would not want to meet a real bear in the forest). And speaking of wild creatures, I must wish you farewell now. The Homework-Beast has me in his sights and it looks like he's ready to "bear wrestle."
Happy Saturday everyone!
