Please look after this bear

Question time!

Who is the bear on the platform?

Why is he all alone at a train station?

Who wrote the tag around his neck?

What lies beneath his bright, red hat?

Why can’t the bear stay at the station?

In what way is this bear similar/different to a ‘normal’ bear?

What will happen to the bear next? What does it mean by ‘this particular bear’s journey was really just beginning’?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw what might be underneath the bear’s hat?

Can you draw the contents of his suitcase?

Story starter!

‘Please look after this bear.’ That was all the tag around his soft, furry neck said.

The station guard had so far been extremely kind to the unexpected visitor on his platform, left behind after more ‘normal’ travellers had bustled their way past. “Always in such a rush!” the man had tut-tutted to himself, before he noticed a bear standing there looking rather forlorn on the deserted walkway.

The bear could not, however, stay at the station. Despite already travelling such a colossal distance from deepest, darkest Peru, this particular bear’s journey was really just beginning.

He knew what might help, and so lifted a paw to reach for what lay underneath his bright, red hat…
