Baby Bear and his patient Mama are back,
and now it is autumn in their forest home. As baby bear counts from one to ten the weather grows colder. Like all the other animals in the woods, the bears are alert to signs of winter coming.
Walking in the woods this morning with my new MerryMakers plush bear cub, I saw signs that the season is changing everywhere I looked.
The ferns are turning yellow.
The fall flowers are blooming
The acorns are ripe and falling from the tree.
And the leaves are turning color.
