The Perfect Bear

Illustrated by Gary Blythe

About The Book

There once was a bear

who was very fine.

He was so polished

and clean

and proud.

And that made him the

Do Not Touch bear.

As time passed,

he become worn

and gray

and much less fine.

But he was also loved by a little girl.

And that made him

the Perfect Bear.
