Let the little bear tell you a story.

The oldest, smallest house you can imagine
is about to be knocked down.
All the things that once made the house nise and cosy
had been thrown outside and piled up in the front garden
from the soft springy bed, to the old wooden floorboards…
and even, surely by some mistake, a ltitle brown teddy bear..
he was trapped amongst all the other unwanted things, and he couldn’t move
then one day, a very, very cold day, something fell from the sky,
… a small snowflake.
it landed on the teddy bear’s nose and then followed by many more..
the little bear was now so cold that his nose started turning blue…
…so cold that his brown fur started turning grey.
He was cold, unloved and all alone in the world, and he felt very, very, sad.
winter finally passed and the weather got warmer
Then, one beautiful spring day,
a ltitle girl was playing near the old house
when she spotted the grey bear in a pile of unwanted things.
he was like no other bear she had ever seen…
and she pulled him out of the rubbish that trapped him
she dusted him and lifted him high in the sky to look at him.
“A grey bear… with a blue nose?” she thought. “How strange!”
The teddy bear wanted to cry.
He thought she didn’t like him and
would throw him back with all the unwanted things
But she didn’t.
“he’s lovely!” she continued and she fell completely in love with him.
She ran home as fast as her little legs could carry her
to see if her grandma could patch him up
as a lot of as his stuffing had fallen out
and he was very much in need of repair
she looked on as her grandma replaced his stuffing
and patched up his holes
His stitches had started showing where the fur had worn away,
but the little girl thought he looked perfect.
it was all cosy and warm in the little girl’s house
and the bear now felt cosy and warm in his heart
However his nose was still blue and his fur was still grey
and they would never return to brown,
but he was unique amongst teddy bears
The little girl gave him a great big hug
and placed a kiss on his blue nose and whispered,
“From Me to You”
She loved him more than anything else in the world
her little, grey, blue-nosed, tatty teddy.
