Story Time Starter â€” Bears
We all love to read stories about bears. There are books about all kinds of bears: big bears, little bears, teddy bears, polar bears, and even grizzly bears at the library. Children will enjoy tales of all their favorite bears. They can even participate in a bear hunt or learn interesting facts about bears when checking out some of our popular bear titles at the library.

Songs and rhymes are always fun to include in your story time.
Five Little Bears
Five little bears were sitting on the ground.
Five little bears made a deep growling sound: Grrrrr!
The first one said, “Let’s have a look around.”
The second one said, “I feel rather funny!”
The third one said, “I think I smell honey.”
The fourth one said, “Shall we climb up the tree?”
The fifth one said, “Look out! There’s a bee!”
So the five little bears went back to their play,
And decided to wait till the bees flew away.
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy lost his hair.
Then Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy.
Little bear, little bear, up in the tree
Little bear, little bear, looking down at me
Little bear little bear, can’t you see?
Little bear, little bear, here comes a bee!
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear turn around
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear touch the ground
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear do a clap!
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch your lap!
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, arms out wide!
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch your side!
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, hop on one!
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, your turn is done!
