Storytime: Thank You Bear

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Thank You Bear is a gently rendered story that can be used to help teach children about speaking good or keeping quiet.

In the story, Bear finds a box and believes that it would make just the right gift for Mouse. Bear heads off to find Mouse and on the way he meets various other animals who each belittle the gift in some way. As a result Bear ends up doubting if his gift is wonderful after all. As Bear is considering this Mouse comes along and declares the gift to be "the greatest gift ever".

The story is easy for young children to relate to and can help open discussions about generosity, consideration, manners, and appreciating what others do for us.
