In the manner of the Three Bears, when I came into work the other day, I asked:
‘Who’s been sitting in MY chair?’
Of course, I could answer it immediately as he was still there.
A big, grey, cuddly BEAR!
(Not Goldilocks this time.)
He hadn’t been eating porridge, at least. But he looked rather comfortable behind my desk and when the children came in, they greeted him with such enthusiasm that I thought I might be out of a job soon.
Here is the cheeky interloper:
Everyone keeps asking me his or her name but, at the moment, I’m not having much luck finding that out. So, instead, I thought we could have a little competition to name the bear.
If you’d like to suggest a name for him/her/it, come to the library and tell me. I will draw up a list and then everyone can vote! Hopefully we will have a name when we come back after half-term.
After an interesting discussion with Anonymous Bear, he (let’s just assume this for now) told me that he would like children to read him stories. But Bear has a bad memory, so every time you read him a story, he’d like you to write the title down in a special book, along with the date, so he can remember all the lovely things he’s heard. You can come in at lunchtime to read to him – quietly, mind. He doesn’t like a lot of noise!
Anonymous Bear is currently residing on a gold throne in the Library…
