This bear storytime went well, mostly because of the massive quantity of bear puppets we own. We had a brown bear, polar bear, panda bear, and because why not, a koala bear. Lion Sleeps Tonight was a huge hit, with sleeping during the slower parts and jumping around during the wimoweh…..and no one questioned the difference between a lion and the bear too.
