The Singing Little Boy Bear
There Was Clinking Clamor in the Garden
Little Boy Bear has a huge day tomorrow; he was competing in a school play. He would be deemed the star of a jazz dance quartet. Mama Bear was working hard to create his dazzling costume, though he was too timid to dance and sing before his pals.
Even so, Mama Bear prepared Little Boy Bear’s warm bath with bubbles, and placed his darling toys in the tub, before leaving to prepare dinner. She left the radio on so he wouldn't feel lonely bathing all by himself in the bathroom.
Little Boy Bear was carried away and started practicing his dance number in the tub when his song began playing on the radio. He had a jolly old time dancing and singing. Water splattered all over the place. His favorite toys flew everywhere, and a tangled puddle of water gathered on the cold floor, too.
Little Boy Bear’s older brother heard his clinking clamor from the garden below. And thought, since he was by now too late for dinner; he could sneak in through the bathroom window to see what was happening with his brother.
Would Mama Bear Discover the Mess?
Big Boy Bear dazed by the mess of his baby brother and surprised by the fun he was having tittered and hollered as he was singing and giggling. He was also digging his shin and tossing soap bubbles in the air. And so he decided to hop into the bathtub too to join his younger brother. After all, he knew he could swiftly clean the mess before their Mama found out what they were doing.
Big Boy Bear Picked Up the Scattered Toys
Little Boy Bear wondered how his older brother managed to appear so suddenly, yet, he was happy to share his bath. He hugged him and decided to play a game of battleship, and then they scrubbed the dirt off their backs. Luckily, Big Boy Bear considered turning off the faucet before a flood arose.
They finally got out of the tub when the water became chilly, and Little Boy Bear’s big brother hastily picked up all the scattered toys and balls. He placed them in a large basket in a corner and used his towel to speedily dry up the floor. When the bathroom was neat and organized they brushed their teeth, before heading to the dining area to eat their dinner.
Little Boy Bear Decided to Wear Mama's Costume
Mama and Papa Bear were waiting for their cubs to eat and wondered why they were so late. Without saying a word, they quietly sat down next to each other before Papa Bear invited everyone to hold hands for a dinner blessing.
After dinner, Little Boy Bear cleared the table and kissed his parent’s good night, and went straight to bed. Though he felt a tremendous deal of stage fright, he knew a peaceful night of sleep would ease his mind. This would energetically get him ready to perform in his grand dance number at school tomorrow.
Little Boy Bear was nearly late for school in the morning since he wholly fussed while putting on his glittering costume. He had great difficulty walking in his dance shoes too. Nevertheless, even though he was a bit mindful and uncomfortable in his dazzling outfit with funny-looking shoes, he knew he had to give his best performance ever. His Mama's silly costume didn't seem too bad after all.
What's more, all his fanatical dancing and singing in the tub with his brother last night gave him an added dose of self-confidence. This helped him to perform his dance act flawlessly, regardless of how silly he thought he seemed dressed in Mama Bear's enchanting costume.
